About

Hello! Welcome to my webpage. I am a PhD candidate at the Chungnam National University, South Korea. My research interest lies in the areas of freshwater ecology, limnology, ecosystem health assessment, risk assessment of invasive fish species, fisheries conservation, migratory fish species, river and stream ecology, longitudinal river connectivity, freshwater quality, fisheries and aquaculture, lake and reservoir ecology, species distribution modeling, remote sensing, and machine learning. I am actively involved in manuscript and report writing, editing, reviewing, data analysis, and data collection. I like to utilize my interdisciplinary academic knowledge and practical experience to provide a holistic perspective on environmental management issues for rivers, streams, lakes, and reservoirs, ensuring that expected outcomes can be achieved with rational exceptions.
