About me

I am a Research Fellow (Postdoc) at the School of Mathematics, Korea Institute for Advanced Study in Seoul, Korea, in the research group of Bumsig Kim.

Previously, I worked in Bonn, Germany as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik and as a guest of Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics. I also taught mathematics and advised students in New York City for seven semesters. I received my PhD from CUNY Graduate Center. Here is my thesis. Before that, I studied Mathematics at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea.

Here is my CV.

Address: School of Mathematics, Korea Institute for Advanced Study, 85 Hoegiro, Dongdaemungu, Seoul, 02455, Republic of Korea

Research Interest

Algebraic topology and differential geometry. Geometric structures on higher bundles, generalized cohomology theories and their equivariant, differential, and twisted refinements. I am also interested in higher categories, index theory, noncommutative geometry, and topology of matters.
