Hyoungshick Kim

I am an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, College of Computing, Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU). I am leading the Security Laboratory (seclab) at SKKU (see [CV][dblp][Google Scholar]).

My current research interest is focused on usable security, blockchain, security vulnerability analysis, and data-driven security.

I received a Ph.D. in the Security Group at the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge, with Prof. Ross Anderson, having written my thesis on complex network analysis for secure and robust communications. After completing my Ph.D., I worked as a post-doctoral fellow working in the Laboratory for Education and Research in Secure Systems Engineering (LERSSE), Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia (UBC). I also worked as a distinguished visiting researcher at CSIRO Data61. Before starting my Ph.D., I worked in Samsung Electronics on research projects for secure home networking and content protection before pursuing a Ph.D.
