Byungkyu Kim received his PhD. in mechanical engineering from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1997. From 1997 to 2000, he was a technical staff member of Center for X-ray Lithography in the University of Wisconsin where he developed a computer code for thermal modeling of a mask membrane and wafer during beam exposure. From 2000 to 2005, he worked at the Microsystem Center at KIST as a principal research scientist. He was in charge of developing a microcapsule-type robotic endoscope. Currently, he is a professor at Korea Aerospace University. His research interests include space mechanisms, robotics, micro/nano-manipulators and biomedical robots.
