Korean Astronomers in Foreign Country

Objective of this information is that providing basic academic information of Korean astronomers who are conducting their research in foreign countries. I start this page largely based on the previous list from Dr. Im, and update information by your inputs. Therefore, it will be underconstruction forever. I hope this page can help

Note : Please visit our new facebook group

Format of information

For each person, the following information is provided:
1) Name
2) Position (student? postdoc? faculty?)
3) contact information (current address, e-mail, phone number)
4) time when Ph.D was (or will be) obtained
5) Name of the Ph.D supervisor
6) Topics of research interests

For some cases, only partial information is available. For those who wants their information be complete, please send additional information to me at korastro at hotmail.com. In particular, I hope each person provides his/her research topic and this page can be useful for sharing his/her science.
