Bom Soo Kim received his Ph.D. in 2009 from the University of California at Berkeley. He was a joint postdoc at IESL-FORTH and University of Crete working together with an experimentalist (high-temperature superconductivity) and a string theorist. He worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Tel Aviv University and as a teaching postdoc at the University of Kentucky before joining Loyola University Maryland as a full time Lecturer on Fall 2017.
My broad research is Holography that provides over-arching paradigm to encompass various different fields of study. In particular, Holography connects the Quantum field theory and String theory. Recently, I have been focusing on various Quantum field theory phenomena toward the Condensed matter physics such as
- Magnetic Skyrmions and Hall Transport,
- Entanglement Entropy and Background Gauge Fields,
- Lifshitz Hydrodynamics and Quantum Critical Point.
For the String theory side, I have been working on
- Effective Holographic Theories,
- Holographic Model for a Quantum Critical Point,
- Holographic Renormalization of Einstein-Maxwell-Dilaton theories,
- Non-Equilibrium Critical Phenomena: Aging.
