Current Project

My stomach is nostalgic; my head follows like a wagging dog

Even after three years, I miss Seoul. Each and every day.

There is nothing I would rather be doing right now than eating 부대찌개, sipping on 매실주 and strolling down 정동길, next to 덕수궁, with Jen arm in arm. When we lived in 서대문, we would just wander home under all the lights of Seoul. Very very dear memories.

Sometimes I would trade all of this current manifestation for another lazy summer evening wandering those streets. Endlessly searching; endlessly thankful.

I was a researcher on the Near Futures Teaching project, a project that explores how teaching at The University of Edinburgh unfold over the coming decades, as technology, social trends, patterns of mobility, new methods and new media continue to shift what it means to be at university. Previously, I was the Research Associate on the NERC, ESRC, and AHRC Global Challenges Research Fund sponsored GCRF Research for Emergency Aftershock Forecasting (REAR) project. I was an Assistant Professor at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (한국외국어대학교) in Seoul, Korea.
