Kim's main research interests are Thuggee and the British in early nineteenth century India, with particular attention to the use of informers' testimonies, interrogations and trial records as sources and inspired by work on Early Modern Europe by the likes of Ginzburg, Ladurie and Darnton. Is currently working on banditry; colonial phrenology and criminality; the itinerant underworld of India and the origins of the 'Criminal Tribes'; and colonial fears of indigenous conspiracies in connection with the 1857 rebellion as part of the 'Mutiny at the Margins'

research team.
