I was born in South Korea and grew up in Southern California. After receiving my BA in Economics and Mathematics from Williams College, I worked at an economic consulting firm for three years where I specialized in mergers and litigations in the US healthcare market. I then pursued an MSc in Social Data Science at the Oxford Internet Institute. Before joining the Big Data Institute, I worked as a health data scientist at the Bennett Institute for Applied Data Science.
Outside of study, I enjoy dancing, poetry, and bouldering.
