Dr. Sejin Kim currently serves as Director of the Communication Program at the University of Utah Asia Campus. He received his bachelor's degree from University of Wisconsin-Madison and worked as an actuarial consultant at a U.S. consulting firm located in Seoul. After this professional experience, Dr. Kim decided to pursue his graduate degrees in Communication (M.S. from University of Louisiana and Ph.D. from Colorado State University). His current research interests pertain to strategic message design, persuasion, information processing, and public campaigns (e.g., health, environment, risk, and science). Dr. Kim has published journal articles and book chapters, and also presented papers at various national and international conferences. Through his research work, he would like to contribute to the creation of more effective messages in strategic communication as well as identifying appropriate channels for current and future communication campaigns. Dr. Kim and his wife are lucky to raise fraternal twins. Raising the twins offers them one more special reason to positively contribute back to the global community. Dr. Kim enjoys visiting beautiful national parks and meeting new friends from different parts of the world.
