Dr. Kim received an exploratory research grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF)
August 20, 2018

The National Science Foundation awarded a grant (BCS-1834323; $299,794) to support Dr. Kim’s research project Toward a General Framework for Optimal Experimentation in Computational Cognition. Jointly funded by NSF’s Methodology, Measurement, and Statistics (MMS) and Perception, Action, and Cognition (PAC) programs, this project will lay the computational foundation for optimal experimentation in cognitive modeling research. Its successful completion will be key to subsequent software development and applications in substantive areas. By facilitating optimal accrual of scientific evidence, the project envisages enabling computational cognition researchers to raise the level of sophistication at which various mechanisms of cognition are explained.

Dr. Kim contributes to child mental health research supported by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)
September 10, 2018

A research project, led by Dr. Ezer Kang at Howard University, on improvig child mental health services in Nigeria has just been funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (R15MH117631; $325,381). Dr. Kim joined the project team as a Co-Investigator from its outset when the study was designed. Having contributed to building preliminary models and planning data analysis, Dr. Kim will continue to provide his expertise in structural equation modeling and linear mixed-effects regression analysis. By investigating multiple factors that hinder child mental health services in Nigeria, the research intends to suggest suitable strategies for promoting their effective utilization.
