Research Statement

In the Kim Lab, we study the interactions and feedbacks between climate and marine microbial ecosystems over multiple scales, using computational modeling approaches in conjunction with observational time-series analysis. We develop numerical biogeochemical models to gain an ecosystem scale understanding of the climate-microbial interactions. We utilize global marine biogeochemical models to seek regional- to global scale understanding of the climate-microbial interactions.
