Dr. Joshua Kang holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Chonbuk National University, South Korea. During his doctoral studies, he conducted research on a development of the superconductor Transistors using a superconducting thin film. As a guest researcher at National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in USA, Dr. Kang conducted research on the optical properties of fluorescence nanoparticles including quantum dots and on pattern defects in a silicon wafer with optical microscopy technique. Notably, he designed and built an integrated confocal microscope capable of capturing three optical properties simultaneously. With an impressive track record, Dr. Kang has authored 60 peer-reviewed research papers. His contributions span diverse areas of study, reflecting his expertise and commitment to scientific inquiry. Currently, Dr. Kang serves as an instrumentation technician, a researcher, and an adjunct professor at Coppin State University. Dr. Kang’s current research interests extend to the analysis of the backscattering signals collected from a Ceilometer. By leveraging this data, he aims to predict future weather patterns-an essential endeavor for environmental monitoring and forecasting.
