Minji Kim

The Society and ECS Korea Section congratulate the 2024 Korea Section Student Award winner, Minji Kim. The award recognizes Minji’s significant contributions to elucidating the degradation mechanisms of cathode materials in lithium ion batteries.

Join us in congratulating Minji! We wish her continued success in her electrochemistry and solid state science studies and research.

Minji Kim

Minji Kim is enrolled in the integrated Energy Science and Engineering MS and PhD program at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU), where she started in the fall of 2018. Her research under Professor Won-Sub Yoon’s supervision at the SKKU Energy Conversion & Storage Materials Laboratory (ECSML) focuses on analyzing the capacity degradation mechanisms of cathode materials for lithium ion batteries using synchrotron x-ray. Her investigation of capacity degradation during long-term high-temperature cycles in a pouch full cell system, employing commercial Ni-rich layered cathode materials and graphite anode materials, was published in 2023 in Advanced Energy Materials (13, 41, 2302209). Minji also conducts ongoing research on various mechanisms of both commercial cathode materials and next-generation cathode materials, including Li-rich disordered materials.
