Dr. Kim received her Ph.D. in Department of Nuclear Medicine at Seoul National University College of Medicine, South Korea in 2013 under the guidance of Prof. June-Key Chung. Dr. Kim moved to Korea National Institute of Health, to study the molecular imaging of high-risk pathogen during infection in living organism. She currently joined LOMIN at NIBIB as a postdoctoral research fellow under the supervision of Dr. Shawn Chen.

Her current research interests focus specifically on the development of novel imaging strategies and nano probes to monitor specific biological processes under physiological settings. Her goal is to develop the theragnostic imaging agent using molecular imaging and nanomedicine technique.
