I am a PhD Candidate in History and East Asian Languages at Harvard University. My research examines gunpowder warfare in the early modern period (1500–1800), with geographical focus on Korea and East Asia. My dissertation studies Korea’s assimilation of global musketry warfare in the seventeenth century, and its impact on governance, commerce and urban development in the late Chosŏn (1600–1910). My works can also be found on the Military Revolution, a debate about the origins of Western ascendancy in global warfare, where I contributed comparative studies of technological and tactical aptitude between armies of Europe and East Asia. Methodologically pluralist, I draw on global military history, digital history and the history of technology.
