Kisuk Kang is a professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Seoul National University where he received his BS. He did his PhD and postdoc at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Before he joined SNU, he was a professor at KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) until 2010. From 2013, he is a tenured professor at SNU. His research lab at SNU focuses on developing new materials for LIB, post-Li battery chemistries—such as Na, Mg batteries and metal-air batteries—using combined experiments and ab initio calculations. For the past 10 years, he has published more than 200 international journals and issued more than 20 patents on this field with more than 12,000 citations (H-index 57). He serves as an advisory board member of Advanced Energy Materials (Wiley) and many others. His accomplishments were recognized by ISE (International Society of Electrochemistry) Young Investigator Award (2011), Inaugural Energy and Environmental Science Lectureship Award (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012), PBFC Award (Korean Electrochemical Society, 2013), the prestigious Korean Young Scientist Award by the President of Korea (2013) and selected as Scientist of the Month in 2017 by the Ministry of Creation of Future Science.
