Ginnie Kim is a doctoral student at the Center and the Department of Educational Psychology at UW-Madison. She works with Dr. Sarah Short and is broadly interested in the effects of early adverse experiences on children's brain development, academic achievement, and well-being. Prior to coming to Madison, she worked as a full-time research assistant in a neuroimaging lab at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH. While building experience in MRI research, she grew more curious to study neurocognitive development in relation to education. By utilizing neuroimaging, Ginnie hopes to delineate how early adverse experiences impact both brain and behavior, in turn creating behavioral and cognitive interventions to avert the achievement gap and promote universal well-being in school.
