I’m a sociologist interested in South Korea's economic and cultural miracles. I wrote my dissertation on Start-up Nation vs. the Republic of Samsung and published several papers on the fans and fandom of Korean popular culture. At present I’m working on the book project ImagiNation of Korea in the post-miracle era.
