POSTECH Ph.D. student Dongki Kim (Department of Electrical Engineering) was granted a USD $20,000 stipend from the IBM Ph.D. Fellowship Awards Program.

Mr. Kim has done research on the Flash Translation Layer (FTL) for Solid State Drive (SSD) reliability and high performance at IBM in America since this May. SSD has been rapidly gaining popularity as a new technology for hard drives. However, the performance and life of SSD is dependent upon FTL.
