Garam Kim, originally from Seoul, South Korea, and later Laramie, Wyoming, is pursuing a PhD in neuroscience at Stanford School of Medicine. She graduated from Northwestern University with distinction for bachelor’s degrees in biological sciences and violin performance, and a master’s degree in biostatistics. Prior to her career as a researcher, Garam worked as a concert violinist, performing as a soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician for audiences across the globe.
