A native of the United States, Dr. Kim is a graduate of Harvard University (BA, MA, PhD) and was formerly an assistant professor at the State University of New York (Albany) and Hong Kong Baptist University. She is a historian of late imperial and modern China, and has also taught courses on modern Asia, colonialism and imperialism in Southeast Asia, and Sino-Russian relations. Her primary research areas include the history of Inner Asia from 1600 to the present, comparative history of borderlands and frontiers, and Chinese ethnic minority languages and literatures (including Manchu and Mongolian).

Dr. Kim's first single-authored monograph (see below) is about the Orochen people in northern Heilongjiang during the Qing dynasty (1644-1911).

She is currently completing a GRF-funded project about non-Han names in Northeast China from 1600 to 1900, a second monograph about the Russian Orthodox Church in Hong Kong (planned for publication in 2020), and a third monograph about food resources and culinary practices in the Amur River region.
