After receiving M.Sc in nutritional science from Busan National University in Korea and PhD in pharmaceutical science from Toyama University Institute of Natural Medicine in Japan, I have worked as a postdoctoral fellow in McGill University for investigation of biological mechanisms underpinning pediatric psychiatric disorders such as attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder using animal models. I have currently been appointed as Assistant Professor at Catholic University of Daegu Department of Food Science and Nutrition in Korea since 2014, and the Director of Center for Childrens Food Service Management since 2015. Based on my experience in interdisciplinary research areas, my research interest is at the midst of biological psychiatry, pharmacology, and nutritional science.

Research Interest

My current research program is directed for development of novel therapeutic approaches using natural products on pediatric psychiatric disorders.
