Dr. Kim conducts research on (1) the environmental fate and transport of engineered and naturally-occurring nanoparticles, (2) the size/shape/composition/structure-dependent behavior of metal oxides in geochemical processes, and (3) metal-metal interactions at active mineral surfaces, plant roots, and bacterial cell membranes, using ultra-high resolution electron microscopic techniques. She will be teaching courses in the areas of environmental mineralogy, biogeochemistry, environmental toxicology/ecotoxicology, and analytical instrumentation.
