I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science. Aside from working further on my doctoral project “Beyond Autonomy and Government: The Community Compact and Local Ritualism in Chosŏn Korea” for its publication, I am currently involved in a project on knowledge found in 14th to 18th century Korean compendia and agricultural manuals.

Previously, I was a member of the research projects “Entangled Parliamentarisms: Constitutional Practices in Russia, Ukraine, China and Mongolia, 1905–2005 (ERC ENTPAR)” and “East Asian Uses of the European Past: Tracing Braided Chronotypes (EAU-TBC).”

Other Publications
