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 specializes in criminal justice policies and policing, with a focus on issues of police accountability and transparency, and racial and gender representation in the police force. My work has appeared in Policy Sciences, Urban Affairs Review, and The American Review of Public Administration.
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
