Research

Dr. Kim’s research program is in multimodal transportation systems planning, with primary focus on the long-distance context and urban as a secondary focus. She is interested in developing models to support investment, planning, and operations decisions for various multimodal transportation programs and systems, focusing on adaptation to the impacts of climate change (both gradual and acute) and the negative externalities of travel. Her research program is supported by her unique formal graduate training in both aviation and traffic operations (including minors in stochastic processes and econometrics).

Research Areas: Resilient multimodal, intermodal transportation; long-distance transportation systems; air transportation and airport operations; northern transportation infrastructure systems, wildfire evacuation; urban cycling

Methods: Systems analysis; resource allocation & optimization; supply-and-demand analysis; networks; econometrics
