Biography

I was born and grown up in Seoul, Korea. After achieving a bachelor’s and master’s degree in the Department of Architecture at Seoul National University, I joined the doctoral program of structural engineering at Cornell CEE.  I am doing research on the wave propagation in inhomogeneous medium whose properties vary randomly in space with Professor Grigoriu. Our objective is to develop a practical method for calculating the probability law of the stochastic process describing seismic shaking at building sites. Related research interests are stochastic process, numerical analysis, FD method and analyrical solution of PDE.
