Hyoungsoo Kim is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at KAIST. He serves as an Editorial Advisory Board member of Experiments in Fluids. 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. Based on the direct optical measurement techniques, he explores fundamental fluid dynamics problems, for instance hydrodynamic instabilities inspired by industry and nature, elastocapillary, interfacial phenomena, complex fluids, elastohydrodynamics motivated by human diseases, aerosols atomization and transportation, liquid and particulates transportation in a porous media. 

 

We always welcome to have new lab members including postdoc researcher, PhD, master, or bachelor (Intern) students. The candidate has to be enthusiastic and self-motivated. If you are interested in the multi-disciplinary fluid mechanics problems, please contact Hyoungsoo Kim (hshk@kaist.ac.kr).

Open vacancies for postdoc researchers: One position is available for now. The research topics are aerosols and liquid metals. Please contact Hyoungsoo Kim.

More open vacancies for graduate students for multiple projects including aerosols, liquid metals, cleaning nanoparticles, wearable device applications.

1) Open internship: How a liquid jet evolves and bothers ambient fluid?

2) Open internship: Flow visualization of complex fluids in roll-to-roll printing system

3) Open internship: Development of mobile flow visualization device based on smartphone.

4) Open internship: Development of a protection mask from virus and pollutants.

If you are interested in these topics, please contact Hyoungsoo Kim (hshk@kaist.ac.kr).
