About

Hello! I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Evans School of Public Policy & Governance at the University of Washington. I research cross-sector public service delivery arrangments. This interest is motivated by my professional experience at the Korea Development Institute (KDI) where I managed the contracting, implementation, and evaluation of international policy consulting projects in collaboration with nonprofit and for-profit entities.

My dissertation focuses on collaborative governance as a mode of service delivery. I study governments that lead collaborative governance to co-produce regional social security services. I analyze how this mode of service delivery impacts citizen trust and participation by applying multilevel modeling and pattern-matching methods on original panel data and interview data. I received the Public Management Research Conference 2022 Outstanding Poster Award and the American Society for Public Administration Section on Korean Public Administration 2022 Student Paper Award (runner-up to the best paper) for preliminary drafts of my dissertation chapters. Abstracts of my empirical chapters are available here.

I am devoted to promoting effective, efficient, and equitable management of public service delivery through my research and teaching. My most recent CV is available here
