They study the enumeration, identification, and certification of disability in India to explore broader questions of how bodies that are considered non-normative come to be made legible as data to the state. Kim is a recipient of the Social Science Research Council’s Mellon International Dissertation Research Fellowship and the Taraknath Das Foundation’s Marion Jemmott Fellowship. They would love to collaborate with other early-career scholars interested in thinking about collaborative STS pedagogies.
