I am Professor of Political Science at the Illinois Institute of Technology in the Department of Social Sciences. My research interests include the following: innovation systems and the challenges of R&D collaboration and technology transfer; the Northeast Asian region and its transboundary air pollution problem; politicized science and how people respond to climate change and “green” energy; politics and technology, including filter bubble formation and social media signaling.
I have received research funding from the NSF, NOAA, the EPA, the Korea Foundation, among others. I was a 2022-23 Fulbright U.S. Scholar and have held research fellowships and appointments at the Asiatic Research Institute at Korea University, the East Asia Institute, the Industrial Technology Research Institute, and the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute. I am also a research affiliate at Argonne National Laboratory’s Joint Center for Energy Storage Research.
