She studies how planning and policy can utilize nature-based solutions to address issues in urban environments, as well as the impacts of such interventions on communities. Kim received a Ph.D. in City and Regional Planning from the University of Pennsylvania. Her dissertation investigates how and to what extent local governments have incorporated green infrastructure into their stormwater management.
