I am interested in how various transportation systems affect the environment and human population. My current research areas are to examine how urban residents who live and travel near heavy traffic roads are affected by traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) in urban environments. Also, I am undertaking an interdisciplinary, multi-institutional research on the economic and environmental impacts of moorage marinas along the Washington and Southern California coastal communities, which is supported by Washington Sea Grant and USC Sea Grant. In the recent past, I have worked on innovative green cities, making the transfer of development rights (TDR) work and promoting livable communities in the Seattle metropolitan area (funded by the Korea Research Institute for Human Settlements [KRIHS]).

My teaching involves a broad spectrum of courses: Introduction to Land Use, Growth Management and Environmental Planning, Transportation and the Environment, Megacity Planning Policies (Seoul), Planning Methods. I like to engage students and help them to conduct their own research as well as pursuing joint research with me.

I serve as a West Regional Representative at ACSP (2016-18), and as a board member of the Western Regional Science Association. I have just completed two years as Council-at-large of the North American Regional Science Council. In international planning, I maintain close contact with Korea Research Institute of Human Settlements (KRIHS) Korea Transport Institute (KOTI) Seoul National University School of Environmental Health, and the University of Seoul. Currently, I am the director of Seoul Case Study Program sponsored by Seoul Metropolitan Government. I am also serving as a member of the College Council in our College.
