Ji-Seon Kim obtained a Ph.D. degree in physics, in 2000, from the University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK, under the supervision of Professor Sir Richard Friend and was a Postdoc Research Associate at Cambridge, Cambridge, UK. She is a Senior Lecturer in physics at Imperial College London, London, UK, and a Visiting Professor in materials science and engineering at KAIST, Daejeon, Republic of Korea. She has previously taken up an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship at the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK. She was a recipient of the 2003 Descartes first prize of the European Commission. Her research encompasses a broad range of fundamental issues related to molecular electronic materials and devices including surface/interface science, device physics, and molecular modeling. Her work has been well recognized internationally, leading to invited talks in international conferences and scientific meetings and publications in major journals. Her research program benefits from multidisciplinary scientific background in theoretical and experimental organic semiconductor physics and surface/interface science, which provides a unique perspective to approach the research program in molecular electronic materials and devices.
