Assistant Professor of Mathematics
B.S., Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology
Ph.D., The Johns Hopkins University
After teaching at Hendrix College (a small liberal arts college in Conway, Arkansas) for three years, I came to Muhlenberg College in 2007. During my Ph.D. program at Johns Hopkins University (a research university in Baltimore, Maryland), I specialized in number theory. More specifically, I am interested in Euler systems of Heegner points of elliptic curves and their applications in Shafarevich-Tate groups, as well as the distribution of zeros of various L-functions in a function fields setting. More generally, I am interested in anything related to prime numbers, such as 2, 3, 5, 7, etc.
