Kim became the Director of King’s Forensics in 2018 and the Laboratory Director of the Drug Control Centre in 2019.  King’s Forensics has a unique infrastructure provided by three laboratories accredited to UKAS Quality Standard (ISO/IEC 17025), as well as bespoke research and postgraduate education.

Our laboratories include the Drug Control Centre (DCC) providing a service for UKAD (United Kingdom Anti-Doping), the Ministry of Defence (MoD), and individual professional sports bodies and is the only WADA accredited laboratory in the United Kingdom; the Forensic Genetics (DNA analysis at King’s) laboratory, which  provides bespoke services for specialist forensic casework and the identification of disaster victims and; the City of London Police forensic laboratory specialising in finger mark analysis.

Together these provide an accredited laboratory footprint unmatched anywhere in Europe and beyond, combining world-leading research alongside essential core techniques applicable for use in criminal justice.

 Kim continues her interests in the detection of illicit drugs using different matrices and forensic toxicology within this grouping.   Kim is a member of the WHO Expert Committee on Drug Dependence. She is currently exploring the use of synthetic recreational drugs (New Psychoactive Substances) in competitive sport, as well as the use of dry blood spots and latent fingerprints for drug testing.
