I am a real estate and financial economist. My research interests are real estate and corporate finance with an emphasis on the study of durable asset financing, asset price bubbles, and financial inclusion.

I worked as a market risk analyst for the North America Rates team at J.P. Morgan's Investment Banking Division in New York. I also served in the Republic of Korea Air Force as a logistics and interpreting officer engaging in various US-ROK combined exercises.

I hold a Ph.D. in Hotel Administration, MA in Economics, and MPS in Applied Statistics from Cornell University. I graduated with an AB in Economics (magna cum laude & high honors in thesis) from Bowdoin College.


I am a native English and Korean speaker, and I have working proficiency in Japanese and elementary proficiency in French.
