Staff Profile

Dr Noori Kim

Assistant Professor/Associate Professor

Background

Dr. Noori KIM is an Assistant Professor in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Newcastle University in Singapore.

Dr.KIM graduated with a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2014 and served as a research fellow in mechanical and aerospace engineering at Nanyang Technological University (NTU). Prior to Join NewCastle University in Singapore, she served as an Assistant Professor at DigiPen Institute of Singapore in Electrical and Computer Engineering department. 

KIM received her BS and MS degrees in computer science from Ewha Womans University in South Korea in 2006 and 2008. During her two years of MS degree study, she was invited to attend the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD in Darmstadt, Germany, as a short-term visiting scholar. Her other accomplishments include research at Stanford University (Palo Alto, USA), Department of Medicine in 2007 as a visiting scholar.

Research

Dr. Kim’s general research interests are in computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering systems, including acoustics, electro-acoustics, hearing-aids, Internet of Things (IoT), transducers and sensors, embedded systems, electromechanic, electromagnetic systems. Her studies focus on both theoretical insights into scientific research as well as developing tangible application systems.

While obtaining her Ph.D., Dr. Kim developed a quantitative model of hearing-aid transducers based on a full command of Maxwell’s equations, acoustics, and electronics. Expanding theory to application, she developed a new ear probe to replace the existing ear-measurement system, allowing one to measure acoustic impedance of the middle ear out to 10 or 12 kHz.

Teaching

Dr.Kim's educational goal for students is to develop and encourage their holistic thinking to combine analytical and intuitive abilities to better understand the world of electrical and computer engineering. 

She is currently teaching modules include

EPE 2207- Project and Career Professional Development

EPE2202 - Digital Electronics
