About

Hello! I am a first-year Ph.D. Student at the Teaching and Learning, Policy and Leadership at the University of Maryland, College Park, advised by Jing Liu. I gained valuable experience as an elementary school teacher in South Korea's public schools and as a data scientist contributing to many projects.

By leveraging the potential of data science, I will explore the untapped complexities and dynamics within and beyond policy arenas and our education system. Below are some keywords related to my current works:
