I AM A SOCIOLOGIST specializing in inequality, globalization, and politics with a particular focus on East Asia. My work seeks to understand why we experience inequality and insecurity in the ways we do at different times and places.
I teach Sociology and Japanese Studies at the Graduate School of International and Area Studies at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies in Seoul, South Korea.
I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa in 2019. During the academic year 2019-2020, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies at Harvard University.
