Welcome! I'm a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, San Diego. My substantive research interests lie in the intersection of security politics, the domestic-international nexus in politics, and politics of information. Methodologically, I am interested in text analysis, formal modeling, and survey experiments.
Title: In the Name of National Interest: Persuasion by Democratic Coercion and Delegation in Security Politics
I received an M.A. in Political Science (Political Psychology) from Stony Brook University, an (terminal) M.A. in Politics from New York University, and a B.A. in Anthropology from Seoul National University.
