Doctoral student in Integrative Neuroscience

Background

Kim is a doctoral student in Integrative Neuroscience working with Dr. Marc Berman. She received her B.A. in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2012, where she worked in Dr. Christine Larson’s Affective Neuroscience Lab performing ERP studies of emotion. Following graduation, she worked as a research assistant in a multi-modal imaging lab at the Medical College of Wisconsin, conducting parallel and simultaneous EEG-fMRI studies.
