Professor Woo Soo Kim honoured with industry award for printable electronic sensors
School of Mechatronic Systems Engineering professor Woo Soo Kim has received the Hanwha Advanced Materials' Non-tenure Faculty Award, recognizing outstanding contributions from young faculty members in the advanced material field.
The award of $13,000 will help to further his already pioneering research in printable electronic sensor technology, including 3D-printed smart objects with embedded sensors.
These advances could help further the development of the Internet of Things – a vision of the future that revolves around interconnected devices built on networks of data-gathering sensors.
The award also marks the start of a new collaboration between Kim and the Korea-based Hanwha Advanced Materials Corporation, a global leader in advanced materials for automotive, electronics and solar energy industries. They will meet annually in Korea for two years to discuss industrial applications for Kim’s research.
