Philseok to translate the concepts of adaptive materials at laboratory scale to human scale structures to improve daylight autonomy and energy efficiency of buildings through the ALivE project, a collaboration between the Wyss Institutes Adaptive Material Technologies platform and the Harvard Graduate School of Design. His experience includes 8 years of R&D in chemical industry and 6 years of academic research in materials science and engineering. During his time at the Wyss institute as a Technology Development Fellow and a Senior Research Scientist, he has been a key contributor to the development of SLIPS technology through various collaborations with industrial partners and through ARPA-E funded projects for energy-efficient cooling equipment and marine bio-fouling applications. He co-founded SLIPS technology with Professor Joanna Aizenberg in 2014 and has since led much of the technology’s commercial development in industrial applications, medical materials, and consumer products. Kim received a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
