Prof. Lim completed his undergraduate degrees in Biosystems Engineering at Konkuk University and an MA in Biomechatronics from Sungkyunkwan University. Ki-Taek continued his doctoral studies in Biosystems Engineering at Seoul National University under the joint supervision of Prof. Jong Hoon Chung. He held a postdoctoral appointment at Dental Research Institute, Seoul National University where he developed high-throughput automated culture platforms via a bioreactor process engineering for enhanced tissue regeneration from stem cells in Prof. Pill-Hoon Choung’s laboratory, plus, he developed nanoparticles as tools to control stem cells in Prof. Jin-Woo Kim’s Bio/Nano-Technology Group, Institute for Nanoscience and Engineering, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. Ki-Taek joined KNU as an Assistant Professor of Biosystems Engineering in Feb. 2015, with getting along with an Adjunct Professor and a Visiting Scholar at SNU (Seoul National University)



Broadly, research in the Lim group integrates new bioreactor process, optical, and bio/nano-technology tools for application in biology and agricultural engineering. We pioneer the bio-convergence system in biosystems engineering approaches, aiming to enable multi-parametric studies with the power to reveal the workings of natural and engineered biological systems.
