Hyon Soo Jeong 정현수
  • B.S., Chemistry Education, Kyungpook National University, 2019
  • B.S., General Science Education, Kyungpook National University, 2019

While studying Pedagogy in Finland as an exchange student, Hyon Soo got interested in Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and realized importance of policymaking for a better world. She was inspired by expanding education opportunities in developing countries with technologies, so she participated in an ICT-capacity building programme for teachers from Africa as a one of ODA programmes in KERIS. She is interested in studying the relationship between digital technologies and SDGs, especially in data and platforms.

Jung Hoon Cho 조정훈
  • B.S., Biological Sciences, KAIST, 2017

Junghoon’s interest is about the relationship between science and society, especially in terms of the interest and attention on science from public. And on that issue, he is also interested in people’s – including both scientists and non-scientists – better understanding of science and technology. In his undergraduate years in KAIST, he tried to figure out the better way of education on science inside and outside of educational system. In graduate school of STP in KAIST, his goal is to find out his own way of contributing to the healthy relationship of science, society, and people.

Minsoo Chung정민수
  • B.S., Mathematical Sciences, KAIST, 2015

In his Bachelor’s program, Minsoo had been interested in political issues and the problem of inequality in Korea. He first joined the School of Electrical Engineering in KAIST for his Master’s program, hoping that, by combining what he had learned in the Department of Mathematical Sciences with Machine Learning (ML), he would contribute to a more just society. Feeling that it would be hopeless merely to study engineering without consideration of the relationship between technology and society, he decided to transfer to the Graduate School of Science and Technology Policy. From the question, “Who would benefit more, and who would become more excluded from technologies?”, he tries to find ways to benefit less privileged people by technology.

Soyeon Jung정소연
  • B.S, Industrial design, KAIST, 2019

Soyeon's interests lie in new emerging technologies. Especially scientific terminologies in legal aspects. She wants to understand how new technologies impact our society. She wants to make better life for human with technologies. Through her internship at Center for Strategic and International Studies(CSIS), she realized that Science Technology Policy is connected to what she wants to study. Finally, she has been wondering how private sectors in South Korea can approach to Science Technology Policy.

Jiwon Park박지원
  • B.A., English Language Education, Korea University, 2019
  • B.A., Political Science and International Relations, Korea University, 2019

The question of "how the government can balance societal goals with individual freedom" has been at the center of Jiwon's intellectual curiosity. While working as a research intern at the Hudson Institute, a think tank based in Washington D.C., she learned that science and technology has always been part of this question, not only as a means to resolve this balance but also by reshaping the behavior of the individual and the state. Through this experience, she has developed an interest in establishing a well-functioning and pluralistic information ecosystem, domestically as well as internationally.

Chaekyung Lim임채경
  • B.S., Chemistry, KAIST, 2019
  • Minor in Science and Technology Policy, KAIST, 2019

Chaekyung’s belief that science always acts for the betterment of the world led her to major in Chemistry at KAIST. But her experiences in different fields during undergraduate year changed her way of thinking. Realizing the inequalities sparked by the development of science, she started to learn the importance and necessity of understanding the perspective of society as much as learning science. This made her to further pursue studies in STP, where science and technology can be viewed at a societal view. Currently, she hopes to study on the lives of the technology neglected class.
