Graduate Students

Da Eun Kim


I am a third-year graduate student in the adult development and aging program. I earned my M.A. in Ewha Womans University specializing in counseling psychology. Afterwards, I worked at a clinical research institute in Korea researching cognitive intervention methods for elderly with Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment. Combining the two, my current research interests include the individual differences in memory function and how it impacts meaning-making in later life. I am also interested in how technology plays a role in memory reconstruction.

Sarah A. Kim


Hi. I am a second-year graduate student in the adult development and aging program of Georgia Tech. I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of Washington. As I spent years interacting with various age groups – infants to older adults, I became interested in human development in general. Narrowing down, I have passion in studying individual and cultural differences in language development, loss, and usage and how it may impact social skills and emotion and create bonds between different generations.
