Young Suh Kim, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Department of Physics for the University of Maryland, was recently selected as Top Professor of the Year by the International Association of Top Professionals IAOTP for his outstanding leadership, dedication and commitment to the physics community.
Inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor in itself, since only a few members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, longevity in their fields, other affiliations and contributions to their communities. All honorees are invited to attend IAOTP’s Annual Awards Gala at the end of the year for a night to honor their achievements. www.iaotp.com/award-gala
With more than 45 years of experience as a professor of physics, Dr. Young Suh Kim has certainly proven himself as an accomplished professional and expert in the field. Currently, Dr. Kim is a Professor Emeritus for the University of Maryland and has maintained this position since 2007. He is a dynamic results-driven leader who has demonstrated success not only as a Professor but in all of his prior positions.
Dr. Kim’s impressive repertoire of past roles include: Post-Doctoral Fellow at Princeton University, Assistant Professor excelling to Full Professor of Physics at the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland. In 1962, Dr. Kim was invited to come to the University of Maryland by John S. Toll, Chairman of the Department of Physics.
Before embarking on his professional career path, Dr. Kim attended the Carnegie Institute of Technology known today as Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. There he earned his Bachelor of Science in 1958. Dr. Kim then went to Princeton University for his graduate study where he achieved his Ph.D. degree in Physics in 1961.
Dr. Kim is a member of the American Physical Society and has traveled to many different countries to further his education. As a sought-after professor, he has attended a variety of professional conferences and meetings over the entirety of his career. He also organized many international conferences. He is one of the nine recipients of the “Lifetime Achievement Award” given by the Marquis Who’s Who in 2021.
This year, Dr. Kim will be considered for a feature article in TIP (Top Industry Professionals) Magazine and for the Lifetime Achievement Award given by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP). In previous years, Dr. Kim has been listed as a Top Educator of Physics and still continues earning meritorious awards.
Dr. Kim began in the 1960 ‘s as a contributor and co-author to numerous books and articles of professional journals such as the Physical Review, Physical Review Letters, Journal of Mathematical Physics, American Journal of Physis, Foundations of Physics, Symmetry, and Quantum Reports. During his research and studies, Dr. Kim authored “Observable Gauge Transformations in the Parton Picture” which was published by the Physics Review Letters in 1989.
Throughout his research career, Dr. Kim was consistently interested in building a bridge between Niels Bohr and Albert Einstein. One hundred years ago, Bohr was interested in the electron orbit of the hydrogen atom, and this became the beginning of quantum mechanics. Einstein was worrying about how things look to moving observers. and this concern became his theory of relativity. The question then is how the hydrogen atom would appear to moving observers. Bohr and Einstein met occasionally to discuss physics. However, there are no written records to indicate that they ever talked about moving hydrogens. Dr. Kim was interested in this problem and provided the resolution to this issue.
The President of IAOTP, Stephanie Cirami, stated that “Choosing Dr. Kim for this award was an easy decision for our panel to make. He is brilliant, has tremendous foresight and is passionate about physics. We are honored to have him as a member of our organization and felt he would make an amazing asset. We are looking forward to meeting him at our Annual Awards Gala being held at the Plaza Hotel in New York City this December.”
Looking back, Dr. Kim attributes his success to his unique experiences including his Princeton background, mentors he had the honor of working alongside, and his strong high-school education in Korea before coming to the United States in 1954. When he is not working, Dr. Kim enjoys spending time with his family, traveling around the world, and making webpages using photographs he took while travelling.
Needless to say, Dr. Kim constructed many webpages about Albert Einstein. For the future, he hopes to encourage students and professionals to pursue careers in Physics and to continue his writings of Einstein and his influence on physics and civilization.
