Research Interests: The effect of different types of democratic transitions on the economic and political outcomes of democracies.

I am a DPhil (PhD) Politics student from the Republic of Korea. My core research interest concerns the effect of different types of democratic transitions on the economic and political outcomes of democracies. Geographically, I am also interested in the authoritarian politics of North Korea. While it is an almost impossible task to directly the political dynamics of the 'hermit kingdom', I have been using innovative proxies to come closer to understanding North Korea.
