About me

I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Economics at Central Washington University (CWU), located in Ellensburg, Washington.

My research interests are macroeconomics, international economics, labor market, structural reforms and entrepreneurship. Specifically, I study why workers have an incentive to become small mom-and-pop business owners and how this occupational choice can have an effect on business cycle dynamics, macroeconomic inefficiency, and policy reforms.

I received my Ph.D. at University of Washington - Seattle (UW), M.A.s from UW and Seoul National University (Seoul, Korea), and B.A. from Yonsei University (Seoul, Korea), majoring in Economics for all of them.
