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 2018). In 2013, I received a BS in statistics from Korea University in Seoul, South Korea. In my dissertation, I develop several dynamic social network models, both discrete and continuous time models, and apply them to some interesting datasets from social sciences including United Nations voting data and government email corpora.

During Fall 2017, I work as a research assistant of Dr. Bruce Desmarais (as a member of Governance and Administration in Networks Lab) and Dr. Bumba Mukherjee (Bayesian survival analysis) in the Department of Political Science.
