Donhee Ham is Gordon McKay Professor of Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering at Harvard University, where he has been with School of Engineering & Applied Sciences since September 2002.

Ham, from Busan, Korea, earned a B.S. degree in physics from Seoul National University in 1996, where he graduated summa cum laude with the Presidential Prize, ranked top 1st across the College of Natural Sciences, and also with the Physics Gold Medal (sole winner). Following a 1.5-year mandatory military service in the Republic of Korea Army, he went to Caltech for graduate training in physics. There he worked on general relativity and gravitational astrophysics under Professor Barry Barish while in physics, and later obtained a Ph.D. in electrical engineering in 2002 winning the Charles Wilts Prize awarded for the best thesis in Electrical Engineering. His doctoral work examined the statistical physics of electrical circuits. He was the recipient of the IBM Doctoral Fellowship, Li Ming Scholarship, IBM Faculty Partnership Award, IBM Research Design Challenge Award, and the fellow of the Korea Foundation of Advanced Studies. He shared Harvard's Hoopes prize with William Andress. He was recognized by MIT Technology Review as among the world's top 35 young innovators in 2008 (TR35). Ham was selected as a Harvard Yearbook Favorite Professor 4 years in a row (2011-2014), and was one of 8 Harvard Thinks Big speakers in 2012 (8 Harvard faculty chosen by colleage-wide votes). He served as an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer for the Solid-State Circuits Society (2012-2013).
