About the author (2016)

James F. Shackelford earned a BS and MS from the University of Washington, and a Ph.D from the University of California, Berkeley. Following a postdoctoral fellowship at McMaster University, he joined the University of California, Davis (UC Davis), where he is currently distinguished professor emeritus in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science. He previously served at UC Davis as the associate dean for undergraduate studies in the College of Engineering, director of the University Honors Program, associate director for education for the National Science Foundation-funded Center for Biophotonics Science and Technology, and as faculty assistant to the director of the McClellan Nuclear Research Center. Widely published and highly decorated, Dr. Shackelford is a member and fellow of the American Ceramic Society and ASM International.

Young-Hwan Han earned a BS and MS from Sungkyunkwan University, and an MS and Ph.D from the University of Nevada, Reno. He is currently a foreign professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Yeungnam University. For many years, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of California, Davis, and University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Han has also worked as an invited professor and research professor at Sungkyunkwan University, Keimyung University, and Pusan National University. He currently teaches materials science courses at Yeungnam University and conducts research in the structural characterization and processing of materials, focusing on nanoceramics. Dr. Han has published more than 60 technical papers and translated several books into Korean.

Sukyoung Kim earned a BS from Inha University, an MS from Seoul National University and from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, and a Ph.D from the University of Vermont. After graduation, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Vermont Hospital. In 1991, he joined the Biomaterials Group in the Center for Biomaterials at the University of Toronto. In 1994, Dr. Kim joined the faculty of the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Yeungnam University. A member of several scientific societies, Dr. Kim, as a chairman, organized the 2009 Bioceramics 22 meeting. He also organized the 29th International Korea–Japan Seminar on Ceramics in 2012. Currently, he is an international executive committee member of the International Society of Ceramics in Medicine.

Se-Hun Kwon earned a BS, MS, and Ph.D from, and served as a postdoctoral associate at, the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). In 2009, he joined Pusan National University (PNU), where he is currently associate professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering. Dr. Kwon also worked as an adjunct professor of the School of Convergence Science at PNU. He is a member of several scientific societies and has published more than 70 archived papers and 20 patents. His research group, Surface Materials Laboratory, focuses on the design and synthesis of multifunctional surfaces and interfacial layers using atomic layer deposition techniques, and on the fabrication of highly ordered nanostructures for semiconductors, photovoltaic devices, and nanodevices by utilizing hybrid bottom-up and top-down fabrication approaches.
