Brief Bio


Kyu-Myong Kim, a Research Physical Scientist at NASA/ Goddard Space Flight Center, received a Ph. D. in atmospheric sciences from Seoul National University, Korea, in 1996. His Ph. D. thesis is on the temporal and spatial structures of the seasonal and interannual variability of the tropical Pacific atmosphere and ocean based on in situ observation as well as ocean circulation model. In 1996, he came to Goddard Space Flight Center, as a National Research Council Resident Research Associates, where he worked on El Nino-Asian summer monsoon interaction and tropospheric biennial oscillation. Since then, he has been working at Climate and Radiation Laboratory, NASA/GSFC as a USRA (Universities Space Research Association) Associate Scientist (1998-2000), as a senior supporting scientist of Science Systems and Applications, Inc. (2000-2006), as a associate research scientitst of UMBC (2006-2011) and Morgan State University (2011-2013) . His research interest includes seasonal-to-interannual climate variability and predictability, climate modeling, and diagnostics. More recently, he has been worked on the effect of aerosol radiative forcing on the monsoon water cycle over various monsoon regions.
