I am proficient in Mandarin Chinese, a native in Korean, and a long time resident of England (some 15 years). In 2014, I conducted field research in Beijing as a visiting doctoral student at Peking University's School of International Studies. Prior to my field research, I participated in the Princeton in Beijing (2014) and Columbia in Beijing (2012) language immersion programs. From 2007 to 2009, I completed two years of military service as an English translator in the Republic of Korea Army, stationed at the Pan Mun Jom truce village inside the DMZ -- a place once described by former U.S. President Bill Clinton as "the scariest place on Earth." I am currently working on my dissertation in Washington D.C.
