Dr Kim's research focuses on (1) understanding the acoustic and perceptual correlates of segmental and prosodic categories in normal speech, (2) understanding the nature of acoustic degradation in motor speech disorder and its impact on speech intelligibility, and (3) developing evidence-based communication aids that are effective and functional in real-world situations for people with communication disorders.
