Councilor – Chris Kim

Chris KimChris Kim is an associate professor of earth and environmental sciences at Chapman University.  He has been a GeoCUR councilor since 2010 and a member of CUR since 2007.  Chris is also the recipient of an NSF-CAREER Award (#0847811) and was selected as a Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award recipient “based on accomplishment in scholarly research with undergraduates, as well as a compelling commitment to teaching.”

“I embark on scholarly research that is informed by my past training while expanding in new and exciting directions, establishing focused expertise in heavy metal contamination at abandoned mine sites and the ability of nanoparticulate iron (hydr)oxides to adsorb and retain such heavy metals.  This work is conducted with the participation of Chapman undergraduates who are involved in every aspect of the research, from designing experiments, collecting samples, conducting analyses, and processing data to preparing results for presentation and publication.  Such an approach provides my research students with lasting experiences that benefit their future careers or educational ambitions while allowing me to sustain a level of scholarly productivity that maintains my prominence and relevance in the field of environmental geochemistry.”
