About Me


Finish this doctoral degree with flying colors and continue on the journey of self-appreciation.


Hello! My name is Kim. I am currently in PhD program at UC Berkeley studying epidemiology and biostatistics. I am working the long-term health effects of environmental chemicals found around the home.

My current interests are in environmental health. Most of our lifestyles, mine included, have strayed so far homeostasis with our surroundings and I believe it is incredibly important to rekindle this connection.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have explored a few places on couches. When I first moved to the San Francisco area, I made a lot of friends out of visiting tourists and did all the touristy things with them. I also started to get more involved in the regular CS group in Los Angeles before I moved from there. I enjoy the culture of gifting and sharing and discovering things together. I also understand that once in awhile you just need a place to stay, and as someone who has trouble sleeping I am happy to accommodate that too!


I enjoy cooking, reading, knitting, sitting by campfires, and going outdoors. Once in awhile I can be persuaded to enjoy a bike ride. I like new and weird things, but I also need quiet, reclusive time. Also, plants. Plants are great.
