Personal Statement: 

I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of California at Berkeley. I study an array of issues in comparative political behavior, political economy, and political development with a focus on the politics of race, immigration, and inequality in the United States, Canada, and South Korea.

Prior to coming to Berkeley, I served on the advisory board of Naver, South Korea's largest Internet company, and worked as a strategy manager at a Seoul-based software startup. I hold a M.A. in political science from the University of California, Berkeley, and a B.A. in political science and English (with honors) from Korea University. I also completed exchange student programs in Hong Kong and Taiwan while an undergraduate.
