Mr Physicist, Rad/Radiological Sciences Laboratory
BioDr Kang received his PhD in Physics and MS in Computer Science from Indiana University Bloomington in September of 1998. Then he joined Diagnostic Imaging Science Center at University of Washington in Seattle for postdoctoral research.
In September of 2000, he worked as an MR Physicist in the Human Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory in Department of Neurology at University of Californian at Davis. His tasks were to maintain and modify the sequences for MR research on a 3 T Siemens Verio scanner and a 1.5 T Philips Eclipse scanner, and develop new procedures for MR data analysis, statistics and visualization. He has published 20+ papers to introduce the innovative methods for MR data analysis, which including the local landmark method, high-resolution space method, and cortical surface projection mapping method, and automated method to detect brain abnormalities. All of the methods have been applied successfully to the MR researches in the lab.
In September of 2017, he joined as an MR Physicist in Palo Alto Veterans Institute for Research (PAVIR) at VA Palo Alto and the Adamson Brain Stimulation Lab in the Department of Neurosurgery at Stanford University.His main tasks are to participate in the research projects funded by Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense, and administration of windows and linux servers for neuroimaging studies.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am primarily working on developing applied ethics, a practical, ground-up approach to helping clinicians navigate sticky/challenging situations in healthcare. I also study professional cultures in healthcare, i.e., clinician-administration relationships or how does an internist think differently than a general surgeon and how does this affect their behaviors.
Executive Director, Center for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine and Imaging, Rad/Thoracic Imaging
BioI’m an accomplished healthtech leader with deep experience in launching & leading research teams. I’m directly responsible for building programs and partnerships, leading teams through all phases of research. I’m especially adept at cultivating interdisciplinary and academic/industry collaborations and navigating complexities inherent to the healthcare space.
My work has supported development of novel technologies and applications, helped to generate substantial research funding, and contributed to numerous high-impact publications. My career has spanned diverse contexts, including academic medical centers, university research labs, and health clinics. My passion for people, operations, and the belief that technology can improve health has been the driving force of my career for the last 20 years.
Of all the things I value most in my career, working for a meaningful cause is at the top of the list. I enjoy working with brilliant clinicians, scientists and engineers who have bold, audacious ideas to improve human health. I thrive in “start-up” cultures where collaboration and excitement are the norm, bringing cross-disciplinary and cross-functional teams together to incubate new solutions. I love the satisfaction that comes from working with a close-knit team to develop and deploy innovations in clinical practice.
