Dr. Chang-Soo Kim

Professor, ECE Graduate Coordinator

Electrical Engineering


Change-Soo Kim received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electronic and electrical engineering from Kyungpook National University, Daegu, South Korea in 1989, 1991, and 1997, respectively. As a Research Associate at the Sensor Technology Research Center, South Korea, he was involved in various research projects and commercial developments of microelectrochemical sensors and systems for monitoring gases, electrolytes, and biomolecules. At the Biomedical Microsensors Laboratory at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, and the Experimental Cardiology group, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, he conducted postdoctoral research on intelligent biochemical sensors, implantable device platforms, and cardiac biopotential recording with micromachined probes. He joined the Missouri University of Science and Technology (formerly University of Missouri-Rolla) in 2002 as an Assistant Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering. Now he is a Professor with research interests including microsystem technologies and novel applications of microsystems to medical, biological and environmental engineering. Dr. Kim served as principal investigator of many federal grants funded by NASA, NSF, NIH and USDA including his NSF CAREER award. He is a senior member of IEEE and serving as an Associate Editor of IEEE Sensors Journal.
