Kyungmi Kim

 

Kyungmi Kim is a cognitive psychologist, whose research program examines psychological mechanisms through which the mind subjectively construes the external world. Her current research is guided by three fundamental questions:

  1. How do we process the “selfness” of external entities and how does this self-related processing affect our cognition and behavior?
  2. How does our prior experience affect what we derive from current experience?
  3. How do our emotions affect how/what we learn and remember?

In her work, Dr. Kim draws on a range of theories and methodologies from within the fields of both cognitive psychology and social psychology.  

Dr. Kim received her B.A. in French Language and Literature from Chung-Ang Univeristy, South Korea and her M.A. in Psychology with a concentration in Counselng Psychology from Yonsei University, South Korea.  She completed her Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology at Yale University.
