Before coming to KAIST, she had been a postdoctoral fellow and data science scholar at Stanford University. She received a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Washington in 2018. Her research broadly contributes to the theoretical understanding of academic knowledge creation by mainly examining the impact of academic search engines, gender inequality in higher education, and the social structure of knowledge construction.
