Biography

Kim's broad research interest is in the processes involved in the perception and production of communication-related information using the auditory and visual modalities. Her research activity involves collaboration with engineers, mathematicians, computer scientists, as well as other psychologists in Australia and overseas (e.g., Germany, Finland, France, Korea, the Netherlands & the USA). Her recent work includes measuring/analyzing/animating facial movements of talkers in various conditions and testing how such conditions impact on the perception of visual and auditory-visual speech. Starting with an ARC IREX fellowship (2000), Kim has been awarded a number of national and international fellowships. In 2001 she was awarded a prestigious National Academy of Education Postdoctoral Fellowship, in 2002 an APD fellowship, and more recently a QEII fellowship (2006). She has been invited 6 times as a visiting scholar to the Max Planck Institute for psycholinguistics. Kim has contributed to her research field by assisting in the organization of a number of academic conferences. For example, in 2004, she was the organiser of a special Auditory-Visual Speech session at Interspeech 2004. Also, she has been a member of the Scientific Reviewer Committee of Interspeech - Eurospeech since 2005. In addition, she is a casual referee for a number of international journals.
