Dr. Kyungil Kong

Research Staff, Wind Blade Research Hub

Dr. Kyungil Kong is a postdoctoral research associate at the Bristol Composites Institute (ACCIS) in the University of Bristol. He earned his MSc and PhD degrees focusing on FEM simulation of nano-composites, multi-scale nano-structured composite materials and their manufacture at UNIST (Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, Korea). After his PhD (2016), he worked as a postdoctoral researcher to develop multi-functional energy harvesting composites for one year at the UNIST. He then moved to a senior researcher position and developed techniques for microwave thermoplastic manufacturing with carbon fibre composites at the AMRC Korea, a branch of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre Group. In 2018, Kyungil joined the WBRH as a post-doctoral researcher and his current research interests include condition monitoring of wind blade materials and manufacturing multi-functional, multi-scale composite materials for a variety of applications.
