LL.B., Seoul National University, College of Law, South Korea; LL.M., Boston College Law School

Since I joined Georgetown Law in 2009, I have been writing my dissertation under the supervision of Professor Lawrence Gostin.  My dissertation research aims to identify national-level factors that may affect a country's compulsory licensing to increase access to patented medicines and review the effect of such licensing, using basic economic analyses, and propose a method for the determination of adequate compensation for the patent holders.  My research interests include access to medicine, intellectual property protection, and economic analyses of legal matters.

Before joining Georgetown Law, I was conducting research on the relationship between a jury trial system and reasonable royalty determination in patent infringement litigation at Boston College Law School as a visiting scholar, and before that, I did both litigation and corporate counseling as an attorney at the Intellectual Property Group of Bae, Kim & Lee LLC in Korea.
