I am an Assistant Professor of the Department of Public Administration at the Catholic University of Korea. I received a Ph.D. from the Department of Public Administration and Policy of the State University of New York at Albany. My research interests are criminal justice policies and policing. For my doctoral dissertation, I studied the variation in the adoption of body-worn camera policy at the state and local levels and the effectiveness of body-worn cameras.

Before I joined the Catholic University of Korea, I worked at the police agencies in Korea for about 15 years. I worked as an intelligence analyst at the National Police Agency and taught police intelligence at the Police Training Institute and Korean National Police University
