■Message from researcher
Message
 I have been studying the effect of globalization extensively for long. Recently, the global economy has changed so fast with more international capital flows and trade flows. This trend, so-called globalization provides a serious challenge as well as opportunity to developing countries. I am studying its implication to growth, distribution and poverty. I have been interested in experiences in East Asian countries. Many of my papers are published in important journals, and I also wrote several books. I was born in Korea and went to Seoul National University. After working in WIDER under the UN, I studied in University of Massachusetts and received Ph.D. there. From October 2002, I joined in Ritsumeikan University. I am mainly teaching foreign graduate students in the MPED program. For further information, please visit my personal homepage.
