Myunghee Kim joins IEEE journal as an associate editor

Assistant Professor Myunghee Kim

Assistant Professor Myunghee Kim has joined the journal IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE) as an associate editor. Her responsibilities will be primarily focused on managing the peer-review process for submissions in the domain of neural systems and rehabilitation engineering.

TNSRE serves the community of biomedical engineers and clinical researchers who work at the intersection of neuroscience and physical medicine. It publishes novel approaches and technologies for better understanding neural systems, human movement, and the relationships between them, with a focus on assistive devices that improve life for patients, for practicing clinicians, and for everyday use.

“Joining IEEE TNSRE as an associate editor holds great importance to me because it aligns perfectly with my expertise and passion in rehabilitation robotics,” said Kim, who is the director of the Rehabilitation Robotics Lab at UIC. “This role not only offers an opportunity to contribute to the forefront of research but also allows me to foster the development and dissemination of groundbreaking ideas that can have a real-world impact.”

This role will enable her to leverage her experience from reviewing for journals such as Science Robotics, Nature Machine Intelligence, and Nature to ensure the quality of scholarly communication and uphold the reputation of IEEE TNSRE.

In addition, this opportunity will considerably benefit UIC by elevating its profile in the international research community. It will foster stronger connections with leading academics and industry experts, opening avenues for collaborative research and funding opportunities.

“This role can provide a platform to highlight the innovative research conducted at UIC, attracting top-tier students,” she said. “It can also allow me to bring back insights and the latest trends in neural systems and rehabilitation engineering to our research programs.”

Kim’s experience with academic journals is extensive and varied. She served as a topic editor on Frontiers in Robotics and AI. Her role as an associate editor for the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in 2020 and 2021, as well as for the Intelligent Service Robotics, has equipped her with a robust understanding of the editorial process, from manuscript screening to the final decision-making, ensuring the integrity and relevance of the research published.

“Leveraging my previous editorial experiences, I aim to enhance the journal’s stature and contribute significantly to its mission of advancing research in our field,” Kim said.
