Ungma village in Mokokchung District, Nagaland, India

I was born in Busan and raised in Daejeon, South Korea. In 2007, I moved to Washington, DC to pursue graduate studies and work in the field of international affairs. I am an avid traveler and a voracious reader of history and science. I enjoy dancing ballet in my free time.

Below, I have added some photos from my past research trips. I hope you enjoy seeing what I experienced.
