Youjin Kim is a postdoctoral fellow at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University under the mentorship of Dr. Jiantao Ma. She had 4 years of postdoctoral experience at Ewha Womans University in South Korea and carried out collaborative research with the Microbiology & Systems Biology department of TNO in the Netherlands. She had focused on the model development for quantifying an individual’s health status and the identification of composite biomarkers for estimating the response to nutritional interventions. Her current research interest includes integrative omics analysis examining the association of diet quality and individual dietary components with age- and diet-related chronic diseases. It also includes statistical analytical investigation to develop predictive algorithms for diet-related chronic diseases.
