ABOUT


I am a PhD Candidate in Music Theory, Indiana University, with minors in Computational Music Theory and Music History.
My research interests lie in popular music around the world, with a special focus on global Asian hip-hop.

As a Pre-Doctoral Fellow for Platform: Global Popular Music research team at Indiana University, I researched how online platforms mediate Pan-Asian popular music, creating a border-less, virtual musical space in which artists in oppressed countries gain voice.
I created this website as a meta-publishing platform in which I discuss Pan-Asian popular music culture that is created, performed, and distributed through online platforms.

In my forthcoming article, "Rhyming Techniques and Identity in Korean Hip-hop," I talk about how Korean rappers establish identity and authenticity through their own definition of rhyme since rhyming tradition does not exist in traditional Korean literature.

I also do some web development. Please see my Portfolio to check out some of my works.
