金姆·哈恩博士本科毕业于韩国首尔的延世大学，随后在内布拉斯加大学林肯分校，取得服装设计专业的硕士学位和服装行销专业的博士学位。 她曾在威斯康星大学斯陶特分校教授本科课程包括：产品开发课，高级发展模式课程，OptiTex 和Autocad 两大计算机辅助设计软件，2011年就职于肯特州立大学。
哈恩博士致力于研究服装行销专业和申请相关创作奖金，她也专门研究服装行销装与设计。 哈恩博士曾参与研究探索文化因素（亚洲与西方国家）的影响并取得创作奖金。 最近，她将研究扩展到整合技术和关注到可持续设计的实践，并申请创作奖金。
我的创作奖金的目标是，开一家有东西文化灵感的的服装店，探索一种创新和现代的消费者旧衣回收的方式。 为达到这一目标，我已经使用各种各样的平面设计技术，例如：手工编织、数字印花和高级开发模式技术。 最近，我的穿戴艺术作品得到国际纺织品和服装协会的认可，获得棉织品设计类棉织品创新一等奖和ATEXINC的2013最佳纺织品设计奖。
Dr. Kim Hahn earned her undergraduate degree from Yonsei University in Seoul Korea, both her master’s degree (majoring in Apparel design) and doctoral degree (majoring in Apparel Merchandising) from University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Prior to her arrival at KSU in 2011, she was an associate professor at the University of Wisconsin-Stout teaching undergraduate product development courses, advanced pattern development courses, and CAD pattern making employing OptiTex and Autocad.
By conducting research in the area of fashion merchandising and engaging in creative scholarship, Dr. Hahn has expertise in both fashion merchandising and design. Dr. Hahn has been involved in research and creative scholarship that have focused on exploring the influences of cultural factors (Asian vs. Western). Recently, she has expanded her research focus to integrate technology and sustainable design practice in both her empirical research and creative scholarship.
Since the beginning of my academic career, my research and creative scholarship have focused on exploring the influences of cultural factors (Asian vs. Western). I have developed several empirical studies related to cross-cultural influences and extensive creative scholarship inspired by my own cultural heritage (Asian culture).
The goal of my creative scholarship has been to create a garment that incorporates both Eastern and Western cultural inspirations while exploring innovative and modern ways of prolonging the life of post-consumer recycled clothing. I have used various surface design techniques, such as hand weaving and digital textile printing, as well as advanced pattern development skills to achieve this goal. Recently, two of my wearable artwork were recognized by the International Textiles and Apparel Association and earned the 1st Place Cotton Incorporated Innovations in Cotton Design Award and ATEXINC Award for Excellence in Marketable Textile Design in 2013.
