Assistant Professor of Earth System Science[Ph.D., Georgia Institute of Technology].  Professor Kim’s Biosphere-Atmosphere-Human Interaction Research Group conducts studies into the ways that biosphere-atmosphere-human interactions affect tropospheric oxidation capacity, which in turn affects secondary photochemical products such as ozone and aerosols.  His laboratory deploys gas phase atmospheric constituents monitoring instrumentation in the field to constrain tropospheric oxidation capacity, providing precise information to diagnose regional and global air quality—critical for public health and climate change policies.  Selected Honors/Activities include: Antarctica Service Medal of the United States of America, National Science Foundation, (2011); ACCESS X (Atmospheric Chemistry Colloquium for Emerging Senior Scientists) Travel Award, (2009); Postdoctoral Fellow, Advanced Study Program, National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), (2008-2009); John Bradshaw Award, The School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Georgia Institute of Technology, (2007).

Research Interests: 

Saewung Kim's Biosphere-Atmosphere-Human Interaction Research Group conducts research on how biosphere-atmosphere-human interactions are affecting tropospheric oxidation capacity. The lab’s main research activities are deploying gas phase atmospheric constituents monitoring instrumentation to the field to constrain tropospheric oxidation capacity.
