I am from Korea. I was awarded my Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Byung-Dong Kim in the Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Seoul National University. During my Ph.D. research, I worked on salicylic acid-induced genes related to plant defense responses in pepper.
After that, I moved to the Biotechnology Center, Nong Woo Bio, Co., Ltd., where I focused on molecular characterization of novel pathogen-induced transcription factors and fruit ripening-related genes in pepper.
In the Rose lab, I worked with a yeast signal sequence trap method to identify genes encoding cell wall/plasma membrane protein genes that are expressed during tomato fruit ripening. The application of this method, combined with bioinformatics and proteomics, provides valuable data for deciphering the mechanisms of cell wall disassembly during tomato fruit ripening and other wall-related processes.
