His recent work examines the pacifying effect of shared identities on conflict outcome using an experimental design. Born and raised in South Korea, his regional specialty includes East Asia, especially the inter-Korean relations. Prior to his current position, he also participated in the State of Maryland’s voting technology renovation, known as Electronic Absentee Ballot Delivery System, at the Center for American Politics and Citizenship.
