Dr. Kwang-Ryeol Lee is now a principal research scientist in the computational science research center, Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST). After receiving Ph.D degree in 1988 at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), he was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Division of Applied Science at Harvard University to study the kinetics of the laser annealing of semiconductor surface. He joined KIST in 1991 and has been leading diamond-like carbon (DLC) research group. From 2001, his research was extended to the computational nano-science to understand atomistic or sub-atomistic phenomena of materials, like interfacial intermixing during thin film growth or surface nanostructure evolution by ion bombardment. He served for many international conferences in both thin film technology and computational materials science. His recent interest is to develop a web-based computational research platform to design nano-materials and devices. He received 4 times the Best Research Award of KIST in 1995, 1998, 2005, 2007, the Commendation of the Prime Minister of Korea in 2006, Two times of NanoKorea Award for Innovative Research in 2011 and 2016. His effort for building Nano Materials Design Platform was recognized by “2018 10 Nanotechnologies” award.
