I completed veterinary medicine studies with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the Konkuk University at Seoul, South Korea. I then went to the United States, where I completed a Master of Science at University of California, Davis, majoring in epidemiology. I developed my interests in infectious disease modeling and completed Master's thesis of swine infectious disease modeling study. 

Research Overview


My research focuses on the mathematical modeling of Australian bat viral infectious diseases. A central theme of my research is to identify how Australian bats maintain viruses, coronavirus and Hendra virus, in their population and which factors trigger spillover of the virus into other mammals.
