Dr. Kiho (Dan) Cho is an Adjunct Lecturer in the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of New South Wales (UNSW)-Sydney and an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Hong Kong. He received the B.S. degree in Mechanical Design Engineering in 2001 from the Chungnam National University, South Korea, Master degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2004 from the University of Colorado-Boulder, and Ph.D. degree in the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering in 2020 from the UNSW-Sydney. From 2004 to 2016, he had worked in a variety of aspect of mechanical technology engineering as a research engineer and a group leader in the Korea Institute of Machinery & Materials, LG Electronics Mobile Communications (South Korea and US), and Cowell Optic Electronics (China).

His current research activities cover a range of topics in the synthesis of multi-functionalised dental materials and characterization, development of new surface treatments on the various micro-/nano-fillers, and molecular dynamics study to design the optimised dental biomaterials so as to improve their mechanical, physical, and biological performances.
