Dr. Katherine A. Kim Named in MIT's "Innovators Under 35" (Asia Pacific)
NTU is pleased to announce that Dr. Katherine A. Kim (Chinese name: 金藝璘), Associate Professor of NTU’s Department of Electrical Engineering and a winner of the Jade Mountain (Yushan) Young Scholar Award, was named among the 20 “Innovators Under 35” for the Asia Pacific Region by MIT Technology Review.
This acclaimed list of “Innovators Under 35” is announced annually by MIT Technology Review to honor exceptional young scientists under the age of 35 who have developed new technology or creatively applied existing technologies to solve the world’s biggest problems. It is one of the rarest honors for young technological innovators around the globe. Launched as TR100 in 1999, the award was later changed to TR35 (35 winners) in 2005 and renamed “Innovators Under 35” in 2013. In 2010, the journal expanded its search and started to organize regional editions of the list. Some of the famous honorees of the global “Innovators Under 35” include Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Google’s Sergey Brin and Larry Page.
Dr. Kim received MS and PhD degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011 and 2014, respectively. She joined NTU in 2019 after teaching at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) in South Korea from 2014-2018. She is an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics and the IEEE PELS Women in Engineering Chair for 2018-2019. Congratulations to her for being elected among the “Innovators Under 35” for the Asia Pacific Region for 2020.
