I am an education scholar with a keen interest in higher education, mobility and migration, and Asian studies. My scholarship appears in journals and volumes across education and area studies with support from the Social Science Research Council, Korea Foundation, Institute of International Education Fulbright Program, and Comparative and International Education Society. My work and professional activities also feature prominently in major media outlets, including The Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Ed, and the Times Higher Education. I am currently working on a book project on higher education reform and evolving student mobility patterns between the United States and South Korea. Most recently, I was named by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) as a 2018-2019 U.S.-Korea NextGen Scholar.
At Georgetown University, I am Assistant Professor of the Practice in the School of Continuing Studies and serve as Faculty Director of Higher Education Administration, a new master’s program that I am building and launching in Fall 2018.
I hold a Ph.D. in Education from the University of California, Los Angeles, a master’s degree in Global Affairs from New York University, and a B.A. in English Language and Literature from the University of Michigan.
