I am a Ph.D. candidate in international law at Yonsei University Graduate School with an LL.M. degree at Harvard and a B.A. degree in economics at Yonsei University. My research interests and recent publications include the history of international criminal law and tribunals (War Crimes Trials after the First and Second World Wars: The Creation of Crimes against Peace and Humanity, Seoul International Law Journal, Vol. 22, p.187 [in Korean]), World War II-era reparation movement (The "Comfort Women" Reparation Movement: Between Universal Women's Human Rights and Particular Anti-Colonial Nationalism, Florida Journal of International Law, Vol. 28 p.87 (April, 2016)) and the development of human rights consciousness and institutions on the regional and domestic levels in East Asia.

I served as an officer in the South Korean Air Force in 2009-2011 and am currently a research fellow at the Seoul-based Transitional Justice Working Group.
