Graduate student · Department of
Mathematics · University of Utah

I am now a **3rd
year graduate student** in the Biophysics
and Stochastics Research Group at the University of Utah,
advised by Professor Paul
Bressloff. Before coming to the University of Utah, I received
my MSc in Computational Science
and Engineering from Yonsei University, South Korea, advised
by Professor Jeehyun
Lee and Hee-Dae
Kwon, and my BSc in Mathematics from the same university.

I am primarily interested in modeling stochastic biological
phenomena and analyzing it mathematically/computationally.
Currently, I am focusing on intercellular signaling via cytoneme,
a long and thin cellular projection, during morphogenesis
of the embryonic development.
