Dr. Kim is an assistant professor at the School of Veterinary Medicine, University of California-Davis, specializing in comparative ophthalmology. Her research interests include corneal wound healing, the ocular toxicity of metallic-engineered nanomaterials, and advanced ophthalmic imaging techniques. She is particularly interested in utilizing advanced imaging techniques, such as optical coherence tomography for serial retinal and choroidal imaging, ultrasound biomicroscopy, and in vivo confocal biomicroscopy, to monitor various ophthalmic disease conditions in animals. Some of her clinical research projects have explored primary angle closure glaucoma, sudden acquired retinal degeneration syndrome, and corneal endothelial dystrophy. Additionally, she has conducted research on the safety and pharmacokinetics of a new drug delivery platform for vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitors in rhesus macaques.
