Hi, my name is Eric Kim. I’m a 6th year PhD student in the University of Michigan’s Psychology Department. My advisors are Jacqui Smith, Laura Kubzansky, Vic Strecher, and Richard Gonzalez.

I conceptualize my research as a triangle, with the corners anchored in aging, positive psychological functioning (e.g., purpose in life, optimism, life satisfaction), and physical health (with a focus on cardiovascular health). I like to continuously revisit and bridge these areas. I also try to bring new insights to old problems by using advanced statistical techniques.
