Sang-hyun Kim


I work at Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS) as Professor in the School of Mathematics since 2019. I also hold an adjunct professorship at KAIST. Before this, I worked at Seoul National University, KAIST, Tufts University, the University of Texas at Austin and MSRI. I received Ph.D in 2007 at Yale University under the supervision of Andrew Casson. 

My research interests focus on the interplay between geometric group theory and low--dimensional topology, particularly motivated by right-angled Artin groups and manifold diffeomorphism groups. I was selected as the Scientist of the Month (July 2020) by the Korean Ministry of Science and ICT.
