About me

Thank you for visiting my website!

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh, with concentrations in International Relations and Methodology. I study foreign lobbying, state behaviors, and the intersection of international and domestic politics. My dissertation “Who Lobbies and When: Analyzing the Patterns of Foreign Lobbying” explores the determinants of foreign lobbying. I examine how the magnitude of foreign lobbying varies across countries, time, and issues, using an original dataset compiled from foreign lobbying reports since 1971. My research has been funded by the Mitsubishi Foundation.

I have experience in teaching International Relations, Comparative Politics, and data analysis at the undergraduate level.
I received a Master’s degree in Political Science from Columbia University and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science & International Relations from Ewha Womans University in South Korea.
