I am an associate professor at Department of Mathematics, POSTECH (POhang university of Science and TECHnology).
I was a participating member of IBS Center for Geometry and Physics. I was a CRM-ISM postdoctoral fellow at Department of Mathematics and Statistics, McGill University from Sep 2007 to Aug 2009 and a CICMA postdoctoral fellow at McGill University
from Sep 2009 to Aug 2010, and being supported by CRM, ISM, and CICMA. I had been appointed as a Clay liftoff fellow during the summer of 2007. I earned my PhD at Boston University May 2007 under the guidence of Glenn Stevens with the thesis "p-adic family of half-integral weight modular forms and its arithmetic applications".
My research area is Number theory and arithmetic geometry, more specifically p-adic modular forms, and special values of (p-adic) L-functions, Iwasawa theory and p-adic (or mod p) Langlands program. Recently I become interested in homotopy theory and quantum field theory and am working on finding a precise and explicit bridge between arithmetic algebraic geometry (number theory) and homotopy theoretic formulation of quantum field theory, with possible applications to open problems on both sides.
