The Digital Learning Project is supporting technology-enhancement of courses in the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific, including online language learning courses and Masters courses. As convenor of the project, Kim relishes the opportunity to work with lecturers re-imagining their courses to use technology to facilitate learning, and to establish systems and structures that support ongoing quality of education development and delivery.

Prior joining the College of Asia and the Pacific, Kim was a Senior Lecturer in the Research School of Engineering. Kim founded the College of Engineering and Computer Science Educational Development Group, and lead collaboration in education with the University of South Australia as part of the Engineering Hubs and Spokes project. The project included sharing design, development and delivery of courses in a novel cross-institutional blended course delivery mode.

Kim completed her PhD at the ANU in the field of Machine Learning, and then worked as a Research Scientist at the Defence Science and Technology Organisation in fields of Document Image Processing and Anomalous Change Detection in communication networks. On return to the ANU, Kim taught Signals and Systems and Communications Technologies, coordinated student research such as the final year engineering projects, and undertook research in the field of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks. Kim also taught maths online for Open Universities Australia.
