I received a BS in biological science in Andong National University in Korea.  Upon completion of my undergraduate study, I took part in several research projects related to cancer immunology as a researcher at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.

Now in Fairlie Group, I will be involved in a project targeting GPCR in cancer based on three-dimensional cell culture technique, mimicking in vivo environment.

I would like to study various signal pathways associated with cancer growth and invasion.
