My name is Seohyun Park and I am an interdisciplinary historian who studies the politics of environmental infrastructure, infrastructure engineering, and Science and Technology in East Asia. My current dissertation project explores the trajectory of water infrastructure development programs in the Republic of Korea from the post-Korean War era to the late twentieth century.  I examine the practices of transforming the messy reality of river systems into manageable national resources.

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Science and Technology Studies at Virginia Polytechnique Institute and State University.  I hold a B.S. in Material Science and Engineering from Yonsei University and M.Sc. in Science and Technology Studies from Seoul National University.
