I am a faculty lead of UNDER (Urban Nature DEsign Research) Lab. The UNDER Lab conducts interdisciplinary design and planning research through quantitative and qualitative methods, including spatial analysis and digital technologies. Ultimately, our research aims to understand how to design healthy, just, and resilient cities through urban nature.
I completed bachelor’s and master’s degrees in landscape architecture at Seoul National University and a Ph.D. degree in urban planning and design at the University of Utah. Before joining UBC, I was an assistant professor in the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning at Utah State University.
