Visitor Period of stay Research interests

Minjin KIM

24 February 2024 to 25 February 2024 I am an associate professor in Department of Astronomy and Atmospheric Sciences at Kyungpook National University. My main research interests are the physical properties of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) and their host galaxies,  and the evolution of nearby galaxies. I am also involved in SPHEREx space mission.
