Native of Seoul, South Korea, I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Musicology at Case Western Reserve University. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media, Society, and the Arts (summa cum laude), from Purchase College, the State University of New York.
My research interests as a musicologist include gender and subjectivities in popular music, nineteenth-century piano music, and the construction of musicianship and listenership. I’m also fascinated by media technologies, linguistics, and religion, and these topics often find their way into my academic writing as well.
As a singer, I currently sing in Case Western Reserve University’s Early Music Singers. In the past, I’ve been a member of several choral ensembles including the Concert Choir and the Chamber Singers at Penn State Erie, the Behrend College. Also, as a pianist, keyboardist, and composer, I have been involved in a number of projects, and was a founding member of Universal Mind Entertainment, Co., in Seoul, which specializes in film- and television music.
