Dr. Kim’s research centers on work and caregiving challenges for low-income parents and how work-family policies, both private and public, can help mitigate such challenges and contribute to the health and mental health of low-income parents and their children. Kim’s recent research focused on the impacts of the child-care subsidy program for low-income families and the implications of underemployment and workplace flexibility for well-being of workers and their children. Across his scholarship, Kim aims to improve the well-being of low-income families by advancing knowledge to inform program and policy interventions.
