Changho Kim is Assistant Professor of the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of California, Merced. He is interested in the development of stochastic computational models and algorithms that enable efficient and accurate multi-scale simulations for realistic applications arising at the interface of physics, chemistry, and biology. With enhanced predictive power of simulation methodologies and high-performance computing capabilities as well as synergistic use of analytical and theoretical approaches, his research aims at advancing the understanding of complex multi-scale phenomena.
As a professor at a Minority-Serving Research Institution, he teaches and mentors undergraduate and graduate students from various backgrounds. He is interested in creating an inclusive and supportive learning environment and in enhancing student learning through activities and projects. He currently serves as the Application Chair for the Broader Engagement Program at SIAM CSE21 Conference, through which he encourages active student participation in professional conferences. He also serves as a leadership team member of Merced Math Teachers’ Circle for K-12 mathematics teachers, college and university mathematics professors, and all mathematics educators in the Central Valley area of California centered around Merced.
