Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research has three central goals:
1. Improving brain stimulation methods
With the continual advancement of brain stimulation technology, there is a need to refine these techniques to generate the most focused and durable effects. I hope to develop a set of quantifiable brain network measures that will complement clinical monitoring, allowing 1) the individualization and optimization of treatment protocols and 2) the ability to monitor the progression of brain stimulation interventions.
2. The neuroscience of psychiatric disease
Psychiatric illnesses are some of the most common diseases, and yet our understanding of the biological etiologies are not well understood. Using a combination of fMRI, EEG, and brain stimulation, I plan to perform experiments to help identify the brain networks involved in these complex diseases.
3. The origin of spontaneous brain oscillations
Resting functional MRI is a non-invasive method that identifies networks that are temporally correlated in the absence of any sensory stimuli. However, the neural basis of resting fMRI is not well understood. We have the opportunity to record from the brain's of epilepsy patients undergoing surgical evaluation to study the link between direct neural signals and resting fMRI networks.

Clinical Assistant Professor (Affiliated) [VAPAHCS], Medicine - Med/General Internal Medicine
Bio Dr Kim is a clinician-educator and staff physician at the Palo Alto VA, precepting residents on the VA homeless outreach rotation, managing a team of RNP/MDs supporting the medical care of veterans in four residential rehabilitation programs, and providing direct care of rural, community college, and homeless veterans through the Medical Outreach Section. Her research interests include measuring the impact of health information technology on primary care workflow in safety net settings, and improving communication skills and tolerance of ambiguity among medical trainees through the arts and humanities. After graduating with AB (Comp Lit/French) and MD from Brown University's Program in Liberal Medical Education, she completed internal medicine residency at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose, CA and a clinical research fellowship in the Division of General Internal Medicine/SFGH at UCSF, where she obtained a Master's in Advanced Studies and was nominated for a Kaiser Teaching award in 2008.
