I’m a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Sociology at Cornell University (with a minor in Demography). I earned my master's in Sociology at Cornell University in 2022 and my bachelor's in Sociology at Yonsei University in 2016. 

My research broadly focuses on how decisions around family formation and family life shape gender inequality in the labor market and household. Currently, I'm working on three lines of research - 1) self-employment, 2) household space and gender, and 4) family formation (transition to parenthood and marriage).
