Professor Kim is specialized in the areas of stratification, work and organizations, race and ethnicity, Asian American studies, Korea studies, and quantitative methodology. The common concern of his research is to contribute to the generation of the critical knowledge and information that will ultimately help policy makers to understand and eventually ameliorate the undesirable sources of increasing socioeconomic polarization in our society. Methodologically, he is interested in panel models and diverse statistical decompositions. His work appears, among others, in American Sociological Review, Annual Review of Sociology, Work and Occupations, Sociological Methods & Research and Korean Journal of Sociology.
