Sehwan Kim (Paul), PhD
Associate Professor,
Department of Biomedical Engineering, College of Medicine,
Vice Director, Beckman Laser Institute Korea Foundation,
Dankook University, Republic of Korea

The research of the iThings Labratory, leaded by Professor Sehwan Kim (go by 'Paul') is focused on creating i-world by "drawing" intelligence on an environment that can literally "perceive" its surroundings and "act" autonomously to customize a person's needs by integrating systems into our daily lives.
General Interests:
- Low-power circuits and systems design,
- iThings-based wireless sensors and systems,
- Medical devices using biophotonics,
- Efficient power and energy harvesting

I consider myself a researcher on embedded systems, with an emphasis on the following topics:
    > iThings Platforms for wireless sensing, medical devices, energy harvesting including both hardware and software
    > Low Power design forwireless sensors, efficient power converter, energy harvesters using supercapacitor-based storage, and
       power optimization for medical devices
    > Applications of embedded systems, including biomedical engineering, diffuse optical spectroscopy, civil engineering, and power
       and energy
