Dr. Kim has been serving as Assistant Professor (tenure track) and Director of Clinical Neuroimaging Lab at the CUNY School of Medicine since 2014. Before joining the faculty, he was Institute Scientist at Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute and Research Assistant Professor at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. Dr. Kim received his post-doctoral training at UCLA (Clinical Neuroscience Lab), Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (TBI Rehabilitation Research Lab), and University of Pennsylvania (Center of Functional Neuroimaging). Dr. Kim’s current research uses state-of-the-art neuroimaging and neuropsychological methods to investigate various neurorehabilitation issues in traumatic brain injury. His research has been funded by the National Institute of Health, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and the Albert Einstein Society.
