Jongman Kim is an assistant professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the director of the Center for Informersive Systems (CIS). Dr. Kim received his B.S. degree from Seoul National University in electrical engineering in 1990. He received the M.S. degree in electrical engineering and his Ph.D. degree in computer science and engineering from The Pennsylvania State University in 2001 and 2007, respectively. He joined the faculty at the Georgia Institute of Technology in August 2007, where his research group is currently working on projects related to multicore designs, heterogeneous System-on-Chip architectures, information-communication-media convergence systems, massively parallel processing, emerging memory systems and storage architectures. He achieved theoretical advances on the interplay between performance, energy, and reliability in SoC/NoC design, and developed massively parallel processing model for multimedia immersive applications and scientific computation. He has been designing an effective hybrid multicore-hardware accelerator (MPPA; Massively Parallel Processing Array) platform with hypervisor software for future digital convergence systems, encompassing the information, communication and multimedia domain with the introduction of CiOS (Convergence in One System) with personalization, pervasive interactivity and immersive media service. He has published papers frequently at top-tier conferences, such as MICRO 2006, ISCA 2006/2007, ISPASS 2010 (Best Paper Nominee), IPDPS 2011, and HPCA 2013; his team won the Best Paper Award at the 13th IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC 2011). He has participated in large scale international R&D projects and initiated collaborative works at both US and Korean companies for several years. These experiences have helped to develop his practical knowledge, not only the theoretical aspects but real world implementations.
He has also collaborated with Super Computing Center of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the researchers working on scientific computation in material science. In addition, he explored various non-volatile memory devices and designed innovative DRAM/PCM hybrid configurations and a novel Solid State Drive (SSD) storage architecture that maximizes performance without adversely affecting power efficiency.
In addition, he continued to focus on the practical aspect of research and hands-on development, and his extensive knowledge and creativity has in turn led to some critical inventions and discoveries. Thus, he pioneered a hardware-assisted security company, Soteria Security Inc., providing comprehensive and solid cyber security solutions.
