I am working on the discovery of biomarkers for sepsis and PTSD. I am also analyzing the perturbed gene/miRNA networks of sepsis patients to explore dysregulated functions in immune cells. I am interested in various omics data types including proteomics, lipidomics, metabolomics, epigenomics, and integrating them to identify the complex mechanisms of the pathogenesis of human disease. I am also interested in combining other types of data such as heart rate variability (HRV) that reflect different aspects of disease pathophysiology.

Outside of working at ISB, I do volunteer work. I was a volunteer tutor for high school students from low-income families and taught mathematics in Korea. In Seattle, I taught at a Korean language school to second and third-generation Korean immigrants from 4th to 8th grade.
I used to bake sweet cookies, pies, and cakes and these days I cook Korean foods such as bulgogi and kimchi fried rice.
