Jiyoung Kim

Ph.D. Candidate, Political Science, UCLA


I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the department of political science at the University of California Los Angeles.

Broadly, I study the political economy of development, conflict processes, and intergroup relations in Sub-Saharan Africa. In my dissertation, I investigate how climate change can increase violent conflicts through the lens of how it affects social dynamics.
