What is a mathematician?

I am an associate professor at Department of Mathematics, POSTECH (POhang university of Science and TECHnology).

I had joined POSTECH (Department of Mathematics) in 2010. I was a postdoctoral fellow at Department of Mathematics and Statistics, McGill University from Sep 2007 to July 2010. I had been appointed as a Clay liftoff fellow during the summer of 2007. I earned my PhD at Boston University in May 2007 under the guidance of Glenn Stevens with the thesis "p-adic family of half-integral weight modular forms and its arithmetic applications". I obtained my Bachelor degree at Seoul National University in Feb 2001.

My research area is number theory, arithmetic geometry, and their connection to theoretical physics. More specifically, I am currently working on three subjects: an arithmetic approach to mirror symmetry, higher (homotopy and algebraic) structures in Iwasawa theory, and arithmetic quantum field theory (arithmetic Chern-Simons theory).
