Welcome to my website. I am a PhD student in the Linguistics Department at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.


My research focuses on Jejueo, a critically endangered language spoken primarily on Jeju Island, South Korea. In addition to Jeju Island, I have been doing fieldwork in Osaka, Japan, where there are small groups of elderly Jejueo speakers. I employ both experimental and naturalistic data collection methods in the field.

I have also done some work on the local variety of English spoken in Hawaiʻi, Hawaiʻi English. Read more about my research here.


I have been teaching at UHM since 2020. Find out more about the courses I’ve taught here.
