Jeongkwon Kim is an associate professor in the Department of Chemistry at Chungnam National University in South Korea. He received his Ph.D. in Chemistry at the University of Michigan with research on bioanalytical mass spectrometry. He first worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, a U.S. Department of Energy facility, where he investigated human plasma-proteome and phosphorylation using state-of-the-art techniques such as liquid chromatography and Fourier-Transform Mass Spectrometry. He then served as a staff scientist in Barnett Institute of Chemical and Biological Analysis at Northeastern University, prior to joining Chungnam National University as an assistant professor in 2006. His recent research includes studies of improving enzymatic protein digestion efficiencies, developing methodologies of post-translational modifications (PTMs) such as phosphorylation and glycosylation, improving an enrichment method of phosphopeptides, identifying the matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mechanism, and determining isotopic patterns of heme ions.
