Jin Woo Kim

I am an assistant professor in Communication at Kookmin University. I received my Ph.D. from the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania.

My research focuses on how people are affected by political (mis)information and how new media technologies shape politics. I draw on surveys, experiments, social media text data, and large-scale administrative data to answer my research questions. 

My work has appeared or is forthcoming in the Quarterly Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Communication, Political Behavior, and the Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law. Click here for my Google Scholar page.

I am a recipient of the 2021 Kaid-Sanders Best Political Communication Article of the Year Award, the 2021 Best Article in Political Behavior Award, and the 2021 Facebook Integrity Foundational Research Grant on Misinformation and Polarization.

I’m also a member of a K-Pop band with Sun-ha HonMinji Kim and Yoona Kang. Our songs are available on YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music and Melon.
