Hyun Kang

About

Dr. Kang is an Associate Professor of Nuclear Engineering Program at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). Before joining to RPI, he was an Associate Professor at the Department of Nuclear and Quantum Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST).
Dr. Kang’s research focus lies in innovations of risk assessment of safety-critical systems, intrinsically safe nuclear power, intelligence of control and protection, and design and evaluation of emergency procedure. Dr. Kang’ research group in Nuclear Plant Reliability and Safety Laboratory develops advanced methods for risk analysis. Dynamic risk assessment and digital system reliability are current funded research topics.
He received the Ph.D. in 1999 in nuclear engineering from KAIST. After his Ph.D., he had worked for the probabilistic risk assessment team of the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) as a senior researcher. In 2011 and 2012, he also taught in Khalifa University in UAE.
Dr. Kang has authored more than 60 peer-reviewed journal articles and 120 conference presentations. He advised 17 graduate students for Ph.D. or M.S. in KAIST (Korea) and Khalifa University (UAE). Currently he advises 4 Ph.D. students at RPI and teaches reactor reliability and modeling and analysis of uncertainty.
