Hee-Sun Kim received her PhD in Linguistics from Stanford. Since 2003, she has taught Korean language and linguistics courses, and supervised the Korean language program at Stanford. Her principal research areas include psycholinguistics, experimental phonetics, and second language acquisition. She conducted research on the integration of multiple sources of information in Korean sentence processing and the relationship between sentence comprehension and production focusing on prosodic disambiguation. She is currently working on the development of pedagogy related to teaching Korean pronunciation and intonation, the processing of gapping structures and given/new information, and the relation between focus projection and argument structures.
