- “The Shifting Nexus of Economics and Security in Asia.” Korean Studies Core University Conference: Diversity, Identity, and Universality in Global Korea, University of Hawaii at Manoa (April 6, 2018).
I was also invited to give a lecture on “Economics and Security in the Asia-Pacific” at the Joint Foreign Area Officer Phase II Pacific Course in Honolulu on March 16, and I participated as a roundtable panelist at a discussion on “Security Issues on the Korean Peninsula” at the East-West Center on April 27.
I had a great time meeting people and exchanging ideas this year, and I’m looking forward to incorporating some of our great discussions into my writing this summer!
