Yoona Kim CV

Yoona Kim (she/her), MSW, MIPA, is a doctoral candidate in the Sandra Rosenbaum School of Social Work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Using a large array of administrative and survey data, she has studied low-income nonresident parents’ involvement in their children’s lives and their interactions with the child support system—both policies and programs surrounding the required transfer of money from one parent to the other when parents live apart—with a particular emphasis on the structural factors facing racially and economically marginalized parents that may hinder their parental role. Specifically, her dissertation is committed to uncovering racial and ethnic disparities in the child support system.
