Dr. Smirichinski is the main developer of the KIM application programming interface (API) for atomistic simulations. This is a cross-language environment (F77, F90, F2003, C, C++, Python and possible future use of Java) which allows any interatomic model to work seamlessly with any atomistic simulation code. Dr. Smirichinski is also an active participant in the development of the KIM requirements document and the KIM API documentation. He has given numerous talks on KIM and the KIM API and is actively working with members of the scientific community to facilitate the adoption of the KIM API standard.
