Background

A. Short Biography:

Dr Do Kyun Kim (DK) is a Senior Lecturer (= Associate Professor) in the Marine, Offshore, Subsea Technology (MOST) Group at Newcastle University, UK and an Adjunct Professor in the Graduate Institute of Ferrous Technology (GIFT) at Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), South Korea. He was an advisor (= leader) of Ocean and Ship Technology (OST) research group in PETRONAS University of Technology (UTP in Malaysia) since 2015 and currently providing his service as an external advisor from June 2019. In 2013, he received a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree at the Pusan National University (PNU), Republic of Korea under supervision of Professor Jeom K. Paik and started his post-doctoral research at POSTECH under supervision of Professor Han S. Choi. His research focus is on nonlinear structural mechanics and analysis in association with limit states and risk-based approaches for “Ships and Offshore structures”. He has authored more than 100 technical papers including journals and proceedings. He is now interested in limit state based structural analysis and design of offshore/subsea engineering in terms of floating structures, risers, pipelines and many others.

Dr Kim is the recipient of numerous awards and honours, including two best paper awards from The Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) (UK in 2009 and 2013), a OMAE best paper award from Ocean, Offshore and Arctic Engineering (OOAE) under division of The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) (USA in 2013), a best paper award from International Conference on Civil Offshore and Environmental Engineering (ICCOEE) (Malaysia, 2016), a gold medal award from International, Invention, Innovation & Technology Exhibition (ITEX) (Malaysia, 2016), a gold medal award from Malaysia Technology Expo (MTE 2017) (Malaysia, 2017), an outstanding researcher award from PETRONAS University of Technology (UTP) (Malaysia, 2016), a best paper award from Federation of Busan Science and Technology (FOBST) (Korea, 2012), a commendation and scholarship award from NIPPON KAIJI KYOKAI (Class NK) (Japan, 2013), an excellence award of port logistics contest from Korea Maritime University (Korea, 2011), a Wakeham (for young scientist – under 30 years old) prize from RINA (UK, 2009), a best student award from Bureau Veritas (BV) (France, 2009), the Lloyd’s Register Educational Trust (The LRET) collegium winning award from University of Southampton (UoS) and Lloyd’s Register (LR) (UK, 2011) and others.

Dr Kim is also actively involved in the actives of a number of international academic societies. He is a member of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA, UK), a member of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME, USA), the life member of the Society of Naval Architects of Korea (SNAK) and the Korean Society of Ocean Engineers (KSOE). He was also a member of IMarEST from 2014-2017.
