Hyunjoong Kim is a Simons Postdoctoral Fellow in Mathematical Biology at the University of Pennsylvania, working with Yoichiro Mori and Joshua Plotkin. HK has broad interests in modeling biological systems for mathematical problems in stochastic processes, partial differential equations, and optimization.
HK received Ph.D in Mathematics from the University of Utah, advised by Paul Bressloff. Before moving to Utah, HK earned a M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics at Yonsei University under supervision of Jeehyun Lee and Hee-Dae Kwon, after attending the same university for his undergraduate studies.
