I am Assistant Professor of Political Science at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) . Prior to joining SKKU, I was an assistant professor at Utah State University. My research interests are international and comparative political economy, political behavior, and public policy with a focus on post-industrial economies, particularly in East Asia. Within these broad fields, I study how new forms of inequality associated with post-industrialization affect the behavior of political actors and in turn, reshape public policy. Recent projects focus on the politics of three important socio-economic transformations in advanced democracies: 1) labor market dualization; 2) gender divisions, and 3) population aging. In this context, I examine the redistributive attitudes and electoral choices of newly marginalized groups as well as the policy responses of political elites.
My work is published or forthcoming in journals such as Political Research Quarterly, Electoral Studies, International Interactions, West European Politics among others. My co-authored book, Democracy Under Siege?, is published with Oxford University Press.
