I am currently the Assistant Director of Undergraduate Studies at Harvard University's Department of Anthropology, starting August 2021. I teach courses on ethnographic research, contemporary Korea, and future studies. 

I graduated with a PhD from Harvard University's Department of Anthropology in May 2021. My dissertation explores the professional world of South Korean "unification preparation." In broad strokes, I am interested in nationalism, future, labor, and media. For more, visit my department profile or personal website.
