My name is Soojong Kim, and I am a doctoral candidate at Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania. My research centers around computational social science, networks, and information. In Fall 2020, I will be joining Stanford PACS as a postdoctoral fellow, jointly affiliated with the Program on Democracy and the Internet (PDI) and the Digital Civil Society Lab (DCSL).

I hold B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Seoul National University, South Korea. I worked at Samsung Electronics as a computer scientist and engineer for several years. Then I came back to academia, started studying social sciences, and earned my Master’s degree in sociology at Seoul National University.

More information about me can be found on my Curriculum Vitae. Research updates, news, and personal announcements are posted on this website’s news section. Research articles and patents are listed on my Google Scholar profile.

I am interested in information propagation, intergroup interaction, and social networks. My recent studies investigated how individuals perceive and exchange information and misinformation in networks between different social groups. As a former computer scientist, I am also interested in applying and developing innovative empirical methods, including web-based experiments, computational modeling, and large-scale data analysis.

I am a recipient of the ICA Best Paper Award, Wharton Russell Ackoff Fellowship, Waterhouse Family Institute Research Grant Award, Annenberg Doctoral Research Fellowship, and MisinfoCon Research Grant. My works have been presented at various academic venues, including the International Communication Association annual meeting (ICA), the International Conference on Computational Social Science (IC2S2), and the Network Science Society conference (NetSci).
