Research program of Dr. Hyoungsoo Kim
Hyoungsoo Kim is currently working at Howard Stone's lab of Princeton University as a Postdoctoral research associate. He has a speciality in direct optical measurement techniques, for instance 2D/3D Particle Image Velocimetry, interferometric analysis, Schlieren method, and high-speed and fluorescent imaging. Furthermore, based on the direct optical measurement techniques, he explores fundamental fluid dynamics problems, for instance hydrodynamics instabilities inspired by industry and nature, elastocapillary, elastohydrodynamics motivated by human diseases, natural convection instabilities inspired by a living animal and microfluidics. He received his Ph.D. degree in Department of Mechanical, Marine, and Material science (3mE), Delft University of Technology (TUDelft), the Netherlands. His thesis is about investigating complex flow pattern inside detwetting corner flow by using tomographic Particle Image Velocimetry and 3D Particle Tracking Velocimetry. The project is based on the industrial application from ASML, the Netherlands. During Ph.D. course, Hyoungsoo was supervised by Prof. dr. ir. Jerry Westerweel at the Laboratory for Aero- and Hydrodynamics. In 2012, he worked as a visiting researcher in the lab of Prof. Ho-Young Kim at Seoul National University (SNU), Seoul, Republic of Korea. He received his M.S. degree in School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Systems Engineering in Division of Mechanical Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, South Korea. His MS thesis was selected as a 2007 Outstanding dissertation award for BK21, KAIST. He received a Summa Cum Laude when he graduated from Kumoh National Institute of Technology (kit) for a B.S. degree, Gyeongbuk, Gumi, South Korea.
