Sungcheol Kim is a Biophysicist in the Translational Systems Biology and Nanobiotechnology group. He joined IBM Research in 2012, Dr. Kim received his M.Sc. in Physics from the Seoul National University (2006), and his Ph.D. in Biophysics from Brown University (2012). After two years of IBM Research in Australia, he moved to IBM Watson Research continuing the research of biosensors based on microfluidic devices. He have been working on biomolecule characterization, fractionation, and manipulation with various nano/microfluidic devices combined with the continuum simulation modeling. He also has a lot of experience analyzing microscopy images and developing scientific softwares. He developed an IDL codes to detect the lattice defects of 2D colloid crystal in real-time video images and a python code to calculate diffusion constant of DNA in fluorescence microscopy.
