MSDE Emerging investigator – Hyungwoo Kim

Hyungwoo Kim is an Associate Professor of polymer science and engineering at Chonnam National University. He specializes in polymer synthesis and his research interests include molecular design of polymers with autonomous responses, synthesis of sustainable polymeric materials, and control of microstructures in polymers. Before joining the current university as an Assistant Professor in 2017, he received his Ph.D. in materials science and engineering in 2014 from Seoul National University and did postdoctoral research in the Dept. of Chemistry at Pennsylvania State University.

How do you feel about MSDE as a place to publish research on this topic?

MSDE is impressive for me. In general, when designing a material for a specific application, it is important to understand the underlying structure or mechanism, since it determines overall material properties. In this context, MSDE more focuses on fundamentals of research on a molecular level and of which the introductory part “design, system, application” particularly help readers catch the essential points.
