Profile photo 
Upload your profile photo in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Your profile photo in Pure is not linked to your public staff profile. Choose a clear, recent headshot where you are easily recognisable. Your image should be at least 340 by 395 pixels. 

To change your name or prefix title contact Ask HR (opens in new tab)  If you want to update an academic title you'll need to provide evidence e.g. a PhD certificate. The way your name is displayed is automatic and cannot be changed. You can also update your post-nominal letters in Subscribe (opens in a new tab).

Job title 
Raise a request through ServiceNow (opens in a new tab) to change your job title (40 characters maximum) unless you're on the ERE career pathway. If you're on the ERE path you can not change your main job title, but you can request other minor updates through Ask HR (opens in new tab). If you have more than one post only your main job title will display here, but you can add further posts or roles in other sections of your profile.

Research interests (for researchers only) 
Add up to 5 research interests. The first 3 will appear in your staff profile next to your name. The full list will appear on your research page. Keep these brief and focus on the keywords people may use when searching for your work. Use a different line for each one.

In Pure (opens in a new tab), select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading 'Curriculum and research description', select 'Add profile information'. In the dropdown menu, select 'Research interests: use separate lines'.

Contact details 
Add or update your email address, telephone number and postal address in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Use your University email address for your primary email.

Jae Wook Kim is a Professor of Aerodynamics & Aeroacoustics in the Department of Aeronautics & Astronautics. He is also a member of Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) for Propulsion Systems Noise within ISVR (Institute of Sound & Vibration Research). He is an internationally leading expert in high-fidelity numerical simulations for canonical problems in unsteady aerodynamics and aeroacoustics. One of his notable achievements is the development of CANARD (Compressible Aerodynamics & Aeroacoustics Research coDe) which is a high-order wavenumber-optimised DNS/LES solver that offers efficient simulations of compressible flows and sound waves by using massively parallel supercomputers. CANARD has produced high-quality research outputs that are published in top-class journals over the last decade or so. He was one of the key contributors to the Computational Aeroacoustics Workshop series organised by NASA between 1995 and 2004. His previous work on aeroacoustic mechanisms of undulated aerofoils has attracted many researchers worldwide to form a research community working on the topic for various applications (giving a keynote lecture at Lorentz Workshop on Airfoil Serration Technology in 2016). His research has been supported by EPSRC, EU Horizon 2020, Innovate UK, Rolls-Royce, Airbus, Vestas and AWE. He is a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society (FRAeS), a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and a member of the UK Turbulence Consortium.

Write about yourself in the third person. Aim for 100 to 150 words covering the main points about who you are and what you currently do. Clear, simple language is best. You can include specialist or technical terms.

You’ll be able to add details about your research, publications, career and academic history to other sections of your staff profile.
