Mikyong Kim's research has focused on investigating the effectiveness of treatment for acquired reading difficulty in individuals with aphasia. Currently, she is interested in investigating treatment methods which directly address the paragraph level comprehension deficits of individuals with acquired reading difficulty. Her research interest also involves investigating the effect of verb naming treatment and narrative characteristics of individuals with aphasia in social group contexts. Mikyong Kim has also studied picture naming accuracy and speed of individuals with aphasia as well as verb naming abilities of individuals with neurodegenerative disease such as dementia. Her work has been funded by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) and other sources. As a community outreach, Mikyong Kim has been running the weekly URI Aphasia Reading Group since 2006.
