Personal profile


I am an Associate Lecturer in the Korea Research Centre at UWA. I am also concurrently undertaking a PhD in Asian Studies at UWA. My PhD is on Korean film noir and particularly considers how Korean filmmakers have engaged with cinematic forms from Japan, Hong Kong and Hollywood. For the past year I have been studying Korean language at Sogang University on a Korea Foundation Fellowship for Language Training scholarship.

Prior to undertaking my PhD I graduated from Murdoch University with a Bachelor of Laws with Distinction, a Bachelor of Arts with First Class Honours in English and Creative Arts, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Chinese Law. My legal studies were heavily focused on the Chinese legal system, and as a part of my Law degree I wrote a legal research paper on the Chinese legal system under Chairman Mao. Because of this Asia focus I spent much of my undergraduate degree studying abroad in East Asia.

Because of this Asia focus I received a 2012 Endeavour Australia Cheung Kong Award to study at Yonsei University, and this experience proved to be formative. It was during my time at Yonsei that I first studied film noir and also experienced Korean culture firsthand. Upon returning to Australia I decided not to practise Law and instead went on to undertake Honours in English and Creative Arts, for which I wrote a thesis titled It's Chinatown: Orientalist Discourse and the City in the Noir Tradition
