Dr. Kim’s (she/her) research program in transportation systems analysis focuses on the operations of multimodal networks, and supporting resource allocation strategies across long-distance systems. She aims to better inform the planning of transportation systems that are more adaptable and resilient to a changing world, collaborating with researchers across disciplines in contexts such as strategic planning for wildfire evacuation, transportation infrastructure decisions under climate change impacts, and integrated analysis of air and ground transportation. Dr. Kim received her MS and PhD in Civil & Environmental Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, and her BASc in Civil Engineering from the University of Waterloo. Prior to joining UBC in March 2021, she was a faculty member at the University of Alberta. Between her MS and PhD studies, she worked in the engineering consulting practice in California and British Columbia. Dr. Kim was most recently awarded a 2022 UBC Killam Accelerator Research Fellowship.
