PhD Student

Hanmin Kim is a Communication Ph.D. Student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He has a M.A. in Communication from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and a B.S. in Journalism with a minor in Middle East Studies from Northwestern University in Qatar. His master’s degree was supported by the East-West Center’s Graduate Degree Fellowship. Hanmin is interested in identifying how government-funded research institutions are utilized by states in developing infrastructures and they ultimately serve the process of state-building. He is also interested in the role that media organizations, mostly state-funded ones, play in the process of nation-building. By investigating them together, he aims to identify effective laws and policies to support and improve the operation of a state.
