Kim, Hyung Joon

/ School of Computational Sciences

Theoretical & Computational Chemistry

Hyung Kim’s research is centered around the theme, theoretical understanding of condensed-phase processes at the molecular level. He and his coworkers develop and apply analytic models and computational methods to analyze free energetics and dynamics of chemical reactions and related spectroscopy in homogeneous and heterogeneous environments. Their primary focus is on solution systems that have important environmental, biological or energy implications. Current thrust areas include chemical reactions in green solvents, energy storage in carbon-based supercapacitors and molecular simulations of kidney stone formation
