Biography

Kyung Ryul Park is Assistant Professor in the Graduate School of Science and Technology Policy at KAIST. He received his Ph.D. in Management (Information Systems and Innovation Group) from London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). He holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy from Harvard Kennedy School and B.S. in Chemical and Biological Engineering and B.A. in International Relations from Seoul National University (SNU).


Park's research is primarily concerned with questions of technology, power and global governance in international development. A core area of Park's study includes ICT and development (ICTD), e-governance, data for development cooperation and socio-political implications of technology and datification. His current empirical research explores the role of open data and emerging digital technologies in socio-economic development with a particular interest in investigating the rise and fall of technological and epistemic determinism in aid governance. His doctoral research focuses on the global diffusion of data-driven development initiatives and failure of aid information management systems (AIMS) in developing countries.


Prior to LSE, he worked in the field of international development for seven years including the World Bank, UN World Intellectual Property Organization, and Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA). As a development practitioner, he has worked within multidisciplinary environment in bridging the gap between policy and practice, in linking up data of different epistemological nature (qualitative and quantitative), using a range of innovative methods (field work, observation, mixed methods, experimental analysis). He worked in Tanzania (2004-2007), India (2008), the United States (2010-2013), Indonesia (2015, 2016) and conducted field research in Kenya, Uganda, and Cambodia.
