ABOUT ME

I am a sociologist who studies science, technology, environment, and social theory. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Chemistry and a Master's degree in Science and Technology Policy at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). I finished my Ph.D. degree in Sociology with joint-Ph.D in Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

 

In my research, I investigate how scientists classify scientific projects, migrate to fundable research projects, and comfortably ignore unfunded research. Specifically, I am writing my dissertation on how scientists (and science) were impacted by the Trump administration's environmental funding renewal.

 

I taught numerous undergraduate sociology classes at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My previous teaching experience includes Environmental Sociology, Sociological Methods, American Society: How it Really Works, and Sociology of Race and Ethnicity.
