Abstract: This presentation gives Dr BeomCheol Peter Kim an opportunity to share his research interests, publication experiences and research perspective with both colleagues and postgraduate students in NZTRI/SHT. In this presentation, Peter will introduce his previous/current research projects either published or accepted for publication at referred journal outlets and discuss a strategic role of literature review and methodology in writing a research paper. The presentation will be closed by deliberating for the cumulative knowledge perspective recognizing that understanding of a phenomenon is developed across several studies.
