Welcome to Professor Jihan Kim's Research Group. 

We are a computational chemistry group at KAIST that focuses on solving some of today's most important energy and environmental related problems.  We aim to develop accurate and efficient models to create, in silico, materials that can be used for wide range of applications such as carbon capture, methane/hydrogen storage, and batteries.   Finally, we are not afraid to use concepts from many other disciplines (e.g. computer sciences, artificial intelligence, music, graphics) to develop unique solutions that can differentiate our group.  


3/2018:  We welcome two new masters students to our group:  Lee Seunghee and Park Hyunsoo.  Welcome!!
