I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Statistics at Pennsylvania State University, co-advised by Dr. David Hunter and Dr. Xiaoyue Niu (Expected August 2018). In 2013, I received a BS in statistics from Korea University in Seoul, South Korea. In most of my research, I study the application of statistical tools to social scientific questions. In my dissertation, I develop several dynamic social network models, both discrete and continuous time models, and apply them to some interesting real-world datasets including United Nations voting data and government email corpora.

Since Summer 2016, I have been working as a research assistant of Dr. Bruce Desmarais (as a member of Governance and Administration in Networks Lab) in the Department of Political Science.  If you want to know more about my research, check out my research and my CV.
