2022 Cohort

I am a PhD student in Sociology and Demography at the University of Pennsylvania, broadly interested in quantitative research of inequality, social stratification, gender, and migration. My current project looks at education expansion and horizontal stratification in South Korea, focusing on wealth inequality. During my graduate studies, I have been a part of various research projects, looking at long term effects of single-sex high schools, attitudes towards immigrants and immigration, health inequalities, as well as adolescent social networks. Prior to joining the PhD program at Penn, I studied at Ewha Womans University where I received an MA in Sociology. I also hold a BS in Hotel Administration from Cornell University.
