Professional Biography

I received my B.A. and M.A. in Korean Language and Literature from KyungPook National University in Daegu, South Korea. I also completed the coursework portion of a Ph.D. in Korean Language and Literature in South Korea. Following my graduate studies, I was able to acquire substantial teaching experience at the university level in South Korea. Specifically, I served for six years as a lecturer in the Department of Korean Language and Literature at Kyungpook National University.  In this role, I taught courses on Korean Language & Culture,  Korean Technical Writing, and Sino-Korean literature to both Korean and non-native Korean students.  I have been teaching Korean language at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill since 2010.
