I am a scholar, educator, and author in the field of comparative and international higher education.

As a scholar, I research and write about higher education reform, international students, and comparative higher education policy in the United States and countries in Asia. My work appears in a number of journals, edited volumes, and policy venues and has received extensive press coverage from media outlets.

I recently completed my first bookConstructing Student Mobility: How Universities Recruit Students and Shape Pathways between Berkeley and Seoul, which is due out with The MIT Press in 2023.

I teach at Georgetown University, where I am Associate Professor of the Practice in the School of Continuing Studies and Faculty Director of Higher Education Administration.

I also serve as Senior Editor of the Journal of International Students.

Previously, I held academic and administrative positions at UC Berkeley and received my Ph.D. in Education from UCLA. I am also a former Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) U.S.-Korea NextGen Scholar and Fulbright Fellow to South Korea.
