I am a second year PhD student in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan. My advisor is Michael Zieve. I also enjoy learning from various mathematicians at the University of Michigan and elsewhere.

I have obtained M.S. in mathematics from Seoul National University in May 2015. My thesis advisor was Atanas Iliev. Before that I have obtained B.A. in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in May 2013. I have not written any senior thesis, but I have developed much of my interest in mathematics by working with Melanie Matchett Wood.

I am interested in algebraic geometry / commutative algebra over finite fields. The following papers may represent a part of my earlier research interests, which still motivate my learning.

**Weighted distribution of points on cyclic covers of the projective line over finite finite fields**, submitted, arxiv preprint- The distribution of points on superelliptic curves over finite fields, with Melanie Matchett Wood and Azeem Zaman; Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society, 143 no. 4 (2015), pp. 1365-1375. old arxiv preprint.
