SFU Additive Manufacturing Laboratory



Dr. Woo Soo Kim is an Associate Professor in Simon Fraser University (SFU), located in British Columbia Canada. He was selected in 2017 as a Brain Pool Fellow for his sabbatical leave at Seoul National University in Korea and stayed at Swiss Federal Laboratories of Materials Science and Testing, Empa in ETH Domain as a visiting professor in 2018. Prior to joining SFU, he was a Senior Research Scientist in Xerox Corporation (XRCC) for two years after the period of a Post-doctoral Research Associate in Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for two and half years. He received BSc degree from Yonsei University in 2001 and MSc and PhD degrees from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in the Department of Material Engineering. He was the winner of Quadrant Award 2007, international PhD thesis competition. And he received Hanwha Corporation’s New Faculty Award in 2016. He is a senior member in IEEE and one of Associate Editors of the IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices. His research interest is broad in the field of Additive Manufacturing of Printed Devices and Systems for energy and sensing applications.
