Young-Mo Kim is a senior bioanalytical chemist at PNNL. He received his PhD from Pohang University of Science and Technology in the School of Environmental Science and Engineering, studying analysis of metabolites during the bacterial and fungal degradation of xenobiotic substrates using gas/liquid chromatography coupled with various mass spectrometers. After obtaining his degree, he joined PNNL’s Biological Separation and Mass Spectrometry group as a post-doctoral trainee, focusing on metabolomics analysis with various types of biological and environmental samples. Now, as a senior staff member in the Integrative Omics group at PNNL, Kim leads and participates in various research projects using mass spectrometry (MS)-based metabolomics approaches to solve biological questions from microbial transformation, synthetic biology, biofuel production, microbiome, carbon flow in the environment, and more. In addition, he has been involved in pulse-chase and isotope-based metabolic flux analysis on selected biological systems. He served as a lieutenant officer in Korean Army (2000-2002) after Reserve Officers’ Training Corps as an undergraduate.
