  • Profile

    I am Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Korea University . My research interests fall under the broad rubric of comparative political economy, comparative political behavior, and political methodology. I am particularly fascinated by, and pursue, finding scientific ways to solve puzzles of the real world politics. Currently, I am working, broadly construed, on electoral politics and the welfare state, and on inequality and democracy across countries.
