Biography

I am a child psychiatrist and an epidemiologist, focusing on the research of the distribution and etiology of the childhood onset developmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and disruptive behavioral disorders, including exploration of the prevalence, incidence and genetic and gene-environmental interactions of those conditions.


Currently ongoing research includes:
1) Prevalence study of ASD in Korean school-aged children
2) Prospective examination of 6-year cumulative incidence of ASD in Korean children
3) Genetic Epidemiology of ASD in Korean children
4) Genetics and GE interactions of social reciprocity in Korean epidemiological sample
5) Neuroimaging study of Korean children with ASD
6) Causes and consequences of bullying in adolescents
7) Effectiveness of anti-bullying intervention in American children
