Hi Kirkland! It's great to be back for my fourth year in Kirkland and third year as a res tutor. Big news! Over the summer, I married the woman of my dreams. Christine and I will be living in L entryway and heading up the International Experience team. I'm excited to keep working with you on fellowships and writing, and to be playing alongside you in IMs. Come share a meal with Christine and me at Kirkland's Korean Table each week as well, or visit our new Japanese language table. I'm a fifth year PhD student in the East Asian Languages and Civilizations/History and East Asian Languages program, focusing on premodern Korea and China. Before coming to Boston, I was a Blakemore-Freeman Fellow (2011-2012) at Sogang University in Seoul, Korea and a Greenberg Yale-China Scholar (2010-2011) at Beijing Language and Culture University and Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. Originally a member of Yale's Class of 2009 (Trumbull College), I spent the 2008-2009 year as a Richard U. Light Fellow at Sogang University (a second home to me), returning to New Haven to finish my senior year and graduate in 2010. Despite all my years away, I remain at heart a Southern Californian. So if you find yourself wanting to talk about the ocean or the sun, about history or East Asia or travel or language study or fellowships or sports or taking time off -- or about anything really, I hope that you'll come by L-12, and that you'll come say hello in the dining hall.
