Sungwook Kim PhD

Assistant Professor of Statistics


PhD, Statistics, University of Missouri, Columbia

Post doctor,  Biostatistics Research Branch, NIAID, NIH (National Institutes of Health)

Research Interests

  • Optimal Experimental Design
  • Interval Censored Data
  • Confidence Interval
  • Coefficient of Variation


Dr. Kim’s research interests in statistics include optimal experimental design under multivariate Weibull distribution, confidence intervals for the survival distribution of event times in current status data, and testing hypothesis for the difference between correlated ICVs (inverse coefficient of variation). At USciences, Dr. Kim teaches courses in biostatistics and statistics for research.  In his free time, Dr. Kim enjoys running and has completed three marathons and one-half marathon.
