Professional Biography

Dr. Jooyoun Kim is currently assistant professor in the department of apparel, textiles, and interior design at Kansas State University. She received her B.S. and M.S. in Clothing and Textiles from Seoul National University and Ph.D. in Fiber and Polymer Science from North Carolina State University. Before coming to Kansas State University, she worked at 3M for over six years conducting research and development of air filtering products.

Kim’s overall research goal is to provide sustainable material solutions for a healthier and safer living by means of surface science and nanotechnology. Her group conducts nano/micro-scale surface fabrication and characterization of fiber-forming polymers to develop advanced functional fibers. Current research focus includes: 1) textile materials with controlled wettability, with analysis of surface/interfacial wetting properties; 2) biomedical application of fibrous materials, including antimicrobial fibers, fiber-based drug delivery, and functional scaffolds.
