I'm David Kim, a Master student in Computer Science at Cornell University, and a researcher in the EmPRISE lab, working with assistive robots.

In my free time, I love playing board games, practicing jazz piano, and biking around the campus. I'm also actively involved with my church (KCC). Whenever I get a chance, I try to travel around the United States to meet up with friends.
