Hun Seok Kim is an assistant professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. His research focuses on system novel algorithms and efficient VLSI architectures for low-power/high-performance signal processing, wireless communication, computer vision, and machine learning systems. Before joining the University of Michigan, Kim worked as a technical staff member at Texas Instruments (2010 – 2014), while serving as an industry liaison for multiple university projects funded by the SRC (semiconductor research cooperation) and by Texas Instruments. He currently holds 8 granted patents and has 10+ pending applications in the areas of digital communication, signal processing, and low power integrated circuits. Kim received his B.S. degree from the Seoul National University (South Korea), and M.S. & Ph.D. degrees from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), all in Electrical Engineering. He is a recipient of multiple fellowships from the Ministry of Information and Telecommunication (South Korea), Seoul National University, and UCLA.
