About Ki Hean Kim
Ki Hean Kim received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Seoul National University, Korea, in 1994 and 1996, respectively. He obtained Ph.D degree in Mechanical Engineering from MIT, USA, in 2005. After completion of his PhD, he moved to Wellman Center for Photomedicine, Massachusetts General Hospital, which is one of largest biomedical optics research centers. At MGH, he developed various optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems and probes, and did various preclinical and clinical studies such as mouse retinal imaging, human vocal fold imaging, and human burn imaging. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Integrative Biosciences and Biotechnology (IBB) at Pohang University of Science and Technology, Korea. His interests include advanced two-photon microscopy and OCT which can image tissue deeper and faster with better contrast, targeting both basic biological study such as immunology, neurology, cancer biology, and clinical diagnosis and therapy.
