Sungjun Im received the B.S. degree in Metallurgical Engineering from Seoul National University, Korea, in 1998, and the M.S. degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Stanford University in 2001. Subsequently, he joined the department of Materials Science and Engineering at Stanford University and received his PhD in 2006. His graduate research was jointly supervised by Prof. Kenneth Goodson (Mechanical Engineering Department, Stanford University) and Prof. Kaustav Banerjee. His doctoral thesis focused on Thermal Conduction Phenomena in VLSI Circuits and Systems. Sungjun was a recipient of the Seoul National University Honors Scholarship from 1994-1997. His research interests included nanoscale conduction heat transport phenomena, interconnect reliability and performance optimization in high-performance VLSI and 3-D ICs, measurement and modeling of thermo physical properties of low-k dielectric films and development of cooling technologies for integrated heterogeneous circuits and systems. Upon his graduation in 2006, he joined the R&D division of Samsung Electronics, Korea. Since Fall 2015, he has been with SanDisk in Santa Clara, CA.
