Hello. My name is Jinsu Kim. I am an assistant professor in Department of Mathematics at POSTECH.

I was a postdoctoral researcher in Department of Mathematics and the NSF-Simons Center for Multiscale Cell Fate Research at University of California, Irvine. My mentor was German Enciso.

I received my Ph. D degree in Department of Mathematics at University of Wisconsin-Madison under the guidance of David Anderson (Thesis title : Stochastically modeled reaction networks : positive recurrence and mixing times).

My research interests lie at the intersection of probability, mathematical biology and network science. (See more details in Research)

If you are interested in collaborating for stochastic reaction networks, Markov chains for biological systems, modeling epigenome dynamics, and any other mathematical biology projects, feel free to contact me.
