Professional and Research Interests

Kim will complete her master’s degree in fisheries at the University of Maine in 2017. For her research, she has examined Maine’s sea urchin fishery as a coupled socio-ecological system. “This fellowship presents an excellent opportunity for me to support marine mammal conservation and recovery initiatives while engaging in outreach with the public and other partners, strengthening my communication and outreach skills,” Kim said.
