Grace Kim graduated from Emory University in 2018 with a B.A. in Psychology and Linguistics. She is currently a Master’s student in the Human Development and Psychology program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. At the Stress and Development Lab, she is working as a research assistant for the OCEAN study studying the mechanisms underlying the impact of children’s socioeconomic status (SES) backgrounds in academic achievement. In addition, she is also completing an independent research study with Dr. Romeo investigating semantic contingency in parent-child interactions and how this influences language development. Her primary areas of interest are psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, cognitive psychology, and developmental psychology. Specifically, she is interested in exploring the roles of environmental and parental factors in children’s language and social-cognitive development. In the future, she hopes to pursue a Ph.D. in developmental psychology. Outside of the lab, Grace enjoys cooking, watching sports, taking care of her plants and doing pilates.
