Research project:

In my thesis I try to understand different facets of statelessness theoretically. They include individual vis-a-vis collective statelessness, citizenship-vis-nationality, voluntary statelessness, state failure and denationalization.

Before starting my PhD at the University of Edinburgh, I took an MA in International Studies at Seoul National University, and a BA in Philosophy and Business Studies at the University of Mannheim. I was an exchange student at the Kyoto University of Foreign Studies in 2012.  Since 2019, I've been an associate member of the “European Network on Statelessness” and a co-chair of the “Normative Theory of Immigration Working Group” which is an international collective of scholars working at the intersections of migration studies, policy studies, and political theory.
