    I am a PhD candidate in Political Science. My research focuses on contentious politics and protest movements in both authoritarian and democratic countries. I am also interested in authoritarian regimes, democratization, repression, human rights, and NGOs. With my language proficiency of both Korean and Mandarin Chinese, my geographic focus is East/Southeast Asia, South/North Korea, and China. My dissertation, Authoritarian Successor Parties and Political Protest in Asia, examines Asian third wave democracies and how authoritarian legacy shapes post-democratization mobilization environment. Recently, I finished my field research in South Korea for my dissertation. This trip was funded by a field research grant awarded by University of Missouri. My research relies on both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Particularly, I am highly trained for quantitative methodology. Bayesian modeling, multilevel modeling, GIS, and data visualization approaches are frequently employed in my research.
