About our Speakers
Seung Kim, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Seung Kim, Ph.D., is an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering within the School of Engineering and Computer Science. Dr. Kim leads the Kim Research Group at Baylor University, which is an interdisciplinary team aiming to develop bio and micro devices for use in diagnosing and treating disease and other healthcare issues.
Dr. Kim joined the School’s faculty in 2016, coming to Baylor from LeTourneau University in Longview, Texas. Dr. Kim’s focus on developing technology that will enable early detection and close monitoring of disease is aimed at helping to reduce suffering and death from cancer and other diseases. Early detection of disease is key to improving survival rates for patients, as well as reducing the economic impact, which can be aided by technological advances spurred forward by research like Dr. Kim’s.
Shaun Hutton, Clinical Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science
Shaun Hutton is a clinical associate professor within the School of Engineering and Computer Science. Mr. Hutton joined Baylor University after more than 13 years at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL). While at JHU/APL, his career spanned a diverse set of projects including the areas of cyber resilience, cyber risk analysis, network situational awareness, network architectures, and end-to-end systems engineering. Most recently, Mr. Hutton was acting Chief Engineer of a cybersecurity group at JHU/APL, where he was responsible for overseeing the technical quality and direction of cybersecurity projects.
Throughout his career, Mr. Hutton has led diverse teams of various sizes working to address the needs of the various entities sponsoring his work. Mr. Hutton left a successful career in industry to come to Baylor University because he is passionate about training a future generation of critical thinkers and leaders in the cybersecurity industry.
Dennis O’Neal, Ph.D., School of Engineering and Computer Science Dean
A distinguished scholar of mechanical engineering and a community-building leader, School of Engineering and Computer Science Dean Dennis O’Neal, Ph.D., has played a pivotal role in growing the School following his appointment as dean in August 2012. He has hired roughly half of the faculty members currently teaching in the School, and student enrollment and research activities have flourished as a result of his leadership across the School’s three departments of mechanical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and computer science.
Dean O’Neal has also provided significant support of fundraising initiatives to increase faculty endowment funding through the Give Light Campaign, resulting in the addition of three named chairs in data sciences, biological and biomedical engineering and materials science. Of particular significance was the creation of Ph.D. programs in mechanical engineering and computer science under his guidance.
