I am a financial news anchor turned media & communications scholar whose passion lies on media justice.
My recent research work includes comparative analysis of the EU commission's digital education policies and S. Korean policies, gendered racism in media news representation during covid-19 and data justice/ethics.
I continue my work with hopes that it can be used to serve the world, especially to help those who are marginalized.
This is me

Financial News Anchor turned Media & Communications Scholar.
I'm a former financial news anchor turned Media & Communications scholar, content creator, writer, cultural ambassador to South Korea and unshakable believer in the power of love. I'm a passionate media and communciations scholar, student of life whose curiosity ranges from political economy, cultural studies, sociology to classical music.
My passion and love for learning enables me to challenge the world, question why the world the way it is and look for ways to bring justice, equality and better world to live in for the next generations. With my extensive experiences in broadcasting and in the field of media & communications, I have recently jumped into the academic world to gain more theoretical knowledge in this interdisciplinary field.
As we are living in a thoroughly mediated world, I pour my passion and heart into understanding the fast changing the world through media and technologies and how they influence our thinking, the way we are living, and impact our culture.
I believe without 'real communication,' we can't be happy. That is how I came to what I do now, from being a world-travelling professional pianist, law scholar, financial news anchor to Media & Communications scholar, currently residing in London, UK, researching and studying.
