About Me

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication at Santa Clara University.

I was previously a Postdoctoral Research Scholar in Agent-Based Social Simulation Modeling at the University of Southern California, under the supervision of Dr. David Pynadath and Dr. Lynn Miller.

Prior to that, I was a Postdoc in the the CESAR Lab (Cognitive Embodied Social Agents Research) in the College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University, under the supervision of Dr. Stacy Marsella.

I am Korean-American, and I love to swim, game, and watch Dodger baseball.
