Welcome to the website for Dr. Sora Kim's lab group in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Kentucky. We explore ecological and evolutionary responses to past climate change at the intersection of ecology, geochemistry, and paleontology. Our research links modern and ancient ecosystems using stable isotope analysis in the context of other techniques. 

“The fossil record is certainly rich in incident and rife with bizarre players, but an extensive body of research now treats the fossil record as a biological laboratory for rigorously framing and testing hypotheses at the intersection of paleontology with diverse disciplines across the full range of timescales encompassed by the earth and life sciences.”
