Prof. Jong Min Kim, PhD, Email:

Jong Min Kim is a Professor of Electrical Engineering in 1944 at University of Cambridge and was the Chair of Electrical Engineering at the University of Oxford from 2012 to 2016. He is also an external advisor/supervisor of NST group. Prof. Kim was formerly Senior Vice President for Technology at Samsung Electronics (1999-2012). His research is described in more than 550 journal papers/proceedings (including 8 Nature/Science, and Nature family journals), 253 patents worldwide. He is responsible for a number of world firsts: CQD based LEDs and displays, LED on glass, CNT field emission high definition displays, and transparent and flexible graphene electrode. He managed commercialization of LCD, PDP, OLED, and LEDs in Samsung. OLED and LEDs were largely started by Prof Kim’s team. He has also managed many high technology trans-national projects including the EU academia-industry project TakOff  (Framework 6 project-IST2000-28519, €10.5 million); major Samsung collaborations with Stanford University (2003-2011), Dupont R&D Centre (2001-2006) and 3M R&D Centre (2004-2009) in US, Toray (2004-2009) in Japan and the Chinese Academy of Science (2003-2010) in China. Recently, he was awarded an ERC advanced grant (2013-2018, “Universal Framework for charge Transport in Quantum Dot Systems”) to study fundamental science/technology for energy/charge transport dynamics in CQD systems and is an overall PI and Project coordinator of Horizon2020, 1D-NEON.
