Jeemin Kim is an assistant professor in the Department of Kinesiology at Michigan State University. His educational background includes sport and exercise psychology.

His research program has two specific major areas of inquiry. First, he studies sport group dynamics, with a focus on understanding how informal roles (e.g., team comedians, mentors, informal leaders) develop in sport teams and how these roles subsequently influence sport teams. Second, he studies social norms and physical activity participation, with a focus on identifying how and under what conditions social norms can promote physical activity participation.

Beyond the two specific areas, he also has broad interests in various types of group and social influences across sport and physical activity settings.
