Kung-Hsuan Lin received the B. S. degree from Electrical Engineering, National Taiwan University (NTU) in 2001, and the Ph. D. degrees from Graduate Institute of Photonics and Optoelectronics, NTU in 2006. Before he joined Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica (IoPAS) as a lab leader, he had been working in National Taiwan Normal University (Physics Department), MIT (Chemistry Department), Industrial Technology Research Institute (Laser Center), and NTU (Center for Condensed Matter Sciences). Dr. Lin has been the leader of Laser Spectroscopy Lab in IoPAS since 2011. He managed the advanced optical microscopes in Bioimaging core facilities in IoPAS for three years. He is a Senior Member of OSA (Optical Society), and a member of American Physics Society, Physical Society of Taiwan and Taiwan Photonics Society.

His research interests are primarily concerned with femtosecond laser spectroscopy/time-resolved optical spectroscopy for material sciences, and femtosecond-laser-related applications. He lectured courses in National Taipei University of Technology (Institute of Electro-Optical Engineering), National Tsing Hua University (Institute of Photonics Technologies), Taiwan International Graduate Program in Academia Sinica (Nano sciences), and National Chengchi University (Graduate Institute of Applied Physics). During 2016 and 2018, he served as the Deputy Chief Editor of Science Monthly/SciTech Reports, which is a domestic magazine/newspaper for popular sciences in Taiwan. He also wrote several articles for PanSci, which is a Taiwanese website for popular sciences.
