Phone Number: (
Expertise and Research Interests: 

Jongwoo Kim received his BS degree at the Kyungpook National University, South Korea in 1989, with a major in Electronics Engineering which includes both Electrical and Computer Engineering. He then finished his MS in the same department and university in 1991. In 1998, he completed a PhD at the University of Missouri, majoring in Computer Engineering and Computer Science.

Since 1998, he has worked for several projects (MARS, WebMARS, PDRS, and IMPPOA) related to biomedical document labeling and processing areas at the Communications Engineering Branch of the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications. His research interests are biomedical document processing, biomedical image processing/recognition, pattern recognition, computer vision, fuzzy theory, and robust statistics areas.

Professional Activities: 

Dr. Kim is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the IEEE Computer Society, and Korean American Society of Biomedical Informatics.

Honors and Awards: 

Dr. Kim has received the NIH Group Award for his contributions to the Publisher Data Review System, and an Appreciation Award from Aquilent in 2012.
