I earned my PhD in Sociology from Brown University in 2012 and spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow at the Korean Studies Institute, University of Southern California, in 2015-16. My research interests include the political economy of development, class politics and social inequality, democracy and civil society, globalization, and East Asia.
My work on the urban middle class and democracy in South Korea has appeared in Urban Studies, Sociological Inquiry, Critical Asian Studies, and Korea Observer.
