International Political Economy | International Organizations | Domestic Politics
I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at New York University Abu Dhabi. Previously, I was a postdoc fellow at the University of Zurich. I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of Wisconsin - Madison in 2021.
My research interests lie at the intersection of international political economy, international organizations, and domestic politics. I am currently working on a book project which examines the dynamics among the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the mass public in a borrower country, and international investors. The project is based on my Ph.D. dissertation, which won the Best Dissertation Award in IR at UW-Madison. Beyond the book project, I work on topics including international financial and monetary relations, investment agreements, trade policy, and public opinion. My works are published at Comparative Political Studies and Regulation & Governance.
I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. While based in Abu Dhabi most of the time, I often travel to the US and Europe.
