Hi, I’m a master’s student in City and Regional Planning at Georgia Institute of Technology.
I do research in urban planning, data science, and information systems in cities. All my works question how to leverage the capacity of vast data and online connectivity to make collaborative cities and healthy communities.
Some topics I have addressed in my works are:
Before I joined the current program, I studied civil engineering and geography at Seoul National University in South Korea, where I first became interested in the power of data that can either support or suppress people in cities.
I have also practiced as a strategic designer/data analyst in urban planning organizations in Korea and the US.
My work often happens in front of computer screens, but the most exciting part of my works always happens while I’m interacting with real people on sites.
