Ph.D., Department of Geography, McGill University, Canada, Sep 2011
▪  Dissertation: Modeling and experimental analysis of carbon exchange from artificially flooded boreal forest and peatland ecosystems

M.C.P. (Specialty in Environmental Sciences), Department of Environmental Planning, Graduate School of Environmental Studies, Seoul National University, Republic of Korea, Feb 2006                                                                                                   
▪  Dissertation: Annual growth of standing biomass estimated with tree-ring data and biometric equation at a Gwangneung deciduous forest, Korea

B.Sc., Department of Life Sciences, Ajou University, Republic of Korea, Feb 2004
Research Interests:

▪  The biogeochemistry of carbon and nitrogen in natural terrestrial ecosystems, such as forests, wetlands, and grasslands
▪  Understanding of changes in terrestrial carbon and nitrogen dynamics associated with climate and land-use/land-cover changes from natural and anthropogenic disturbances (e.g. fires, permafrost degradation, and hydroelectricity developments)
▪  Laboratory experimental and model-based research on greenhouse gas fluxes (CO2, CH4, and N2O) and dissolved carbon and nitrogen from pristine and disturbed terrestrial ecosystems
▪  Landscape or regional modeling using geographic information system and remote sensing data to estimate large-scale carbon and nitrogen exchange
▪  Characterization of ecosystem attributions and landscape formation (e.g. canopy temperature, leaf area, and vegetation biomass), key factors on terrestrial biogeochemistry, based on field measurements and applying high-resolution satellite image
