About JaeRan Kim

JaeRan Kim PhD, LISW is an assistant professor at the University of Washington Tacoma in the social work and criminal justice program. Prior to completing her PhD in Social Work at the University of Minnesota, JaeRan was a Project Coordinator at the Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare at the School of Social Work, worked in foster care/adoption (both public and private), with at-risk young moms, and with adults with disabilities in residential care. JaeRan’s research focuses on vulnerable children, with particular attention to those in out of home care both in the U.S. and around the world. Her most recently completed research was a study of the perspectives of adoptive parents who placed an internationally adopted child in out of home care. Currently, JaeRan is conducting research in three areas: the experiences of Korean adoptee parents in the U.S. (in partnership with the University of Minnesota); understanding the use of volunteer foster placement for children with disabilities; and the experiences of intercountry adopted adults who spent time in out-of-home care apart from their adoptive family.
