Bio

Kim was born and raised in Colorado and received her B.S. in Chemistry from the Colorado School of Mines in 2009 where she worked with Drs. John Turner and Todd Deutsch at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory on photoelectrochemical water splitting. Following a year at the University of Colorado working with Prof. Gordana Dukovic on zinc oxide nanoparticle synthesis and a year in industry at NuSil Technology working on high refractive index silicones, Kim went to the University of California, Santa Barbara for her Ph.D. She worked with Profs. Ram Seshadri and Galen Stucky on next-generation batteries and received her Ph.D. in 2014. Kim was awarded the St. Elmo Brady Future Faculty Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and worked with Prof. Andrew Gewirth in the Department of Chemistry until the fall of 2017. Her postdoctoral work focused on the solvation structure of active cations in electrolyte solutions in Li-S and Mg batteries.
