        I am a third year PhD student in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan. My advisor is Michael Zieve.

   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.


 

Research

   In general, I am interested in algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, and algebraic topology. More specifically, I like to think about relationships between point-count over finite fields and (co)homology groups, using motivic zeta series over Grothendieck ring of certain spaces.
