I received a B.A. in English Language & Literature (and Applied English Linguistics as double major) from Kyung Hee University in Korea, and a M.A degree in TESOL from Michigan State University. In the SLS program, I have been working as a research assistant and Eye-tracking Lab assistant under Dr. Paula Winke.
My research interests revolve around second language acquisition of morphosyntax from a formal and psycholinguistic perspective. Especially I have been interested in second language processing at the sentence level, specifically in relation to some crosslinguistically variant morphosyntactic features, such as movement, cases, transitivity, and argument structures.
