    I received my Ph.D. in Biophysics from the University of Michigan. My research interests lie in collective, community level behavior of different biological systems. I aim to combine experimental approaches with theoretical models to try to understand the different rules governing a system. My previous work has focused on cooperation and competition in bacterial communities and population dynamics of these communities; at Princeton I hope to use similar approaches to study neural circuits of the model organism, C. elegans, and the dynamical behavior seen in them. I plan to use both experimental and theoretical approaches to link structure to function and understand the neural circuits.

    Graduate Student
    Donia and Mallarino Labs

    I grew up in Daegu, South Korea and received my BA in Biology from Grinnell College. I am broadly interested in evolutionary biology and developmental biology. I currently plan to investigate the role of peptides in mammalian development. My hobbies include indoor rock climbing, driving, and eating.
