Jess Kim is of Korean-Irish descent and holds an MPH in epidemiology. As a researcher for the Army, she worked on female/trans special forces integration, perfecting polite email responses to people who insisted that women run slower due to “boob wind resistance” (not supported by data). She creates work that examines the absurd obsession with social norms, primarily working in comedy. With published works in both peer-reviewed scientific literature and the fiction realm, she seeks to bridge science and art through comedy and story-telling.
