Kyeong Kim is involved in surface characterizations of the proposed field sites using X-ray analysis and comparison of terrestrial analogue with lunar and matrian surface envirionment characterized by elemental remote sensing data
Kyeong Kim worked as a staff scientist at the GNS Science, Lower Hutt, New Zealand from 1996 to 2002. Kyeong Kim worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Meteorites at the University of New Mexico from 2002 to 2005 participating in Mars Odyssey Gamma–Ray Spectrometer Program and NASA Cosmochemistry Program for numerical modeling of cosmogenic nuclide production rates in extraterrestrial materials. Kyeong Kim worked as an assistant staff scientist at Lunar and Planetary Sciences at the University of Arizona from 2005 to 2006 to continue in participation for the Mars Odyssey Gamma-Ray Spectrometer Program. Kyeong Kim joined Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources in Dec. 2006 and currently Kyeong Kim works as a principal researcher at the Planetary Geology Department of the Geological Research Division. Kyeong Kim is an adjunct professor at the Department of Geophysical exploration at the University of Science and Technology, Daejeon, Korea. Kyeong Kim has participated in SELENE-1 (Kaguya) GRS program since 2009 and worked on the preproject of SELENE-2 Rover’s Active X-ray Spectrometer program. Kyeong Kim focuses on research areas of planetary remote sensing using nuclear science payloads, paleoclimate change, and cosmogeochronology using cosmogenic nuclides, especially for Beryllium-10, Aluminum-26, and Carbon-14.
