Before joining Human Rights Watch, she worked at UNICEF, where she advised teams across the world on the ethical use of data and technologies to deliver assistance to the world’s most vulnerable children. She has also worked to deliver humanitarian aid to children and families with UNICEF South Sudan and with the United Nations Peacekeeping Mission in South Sudan, and was seconded to the World Food Progamme to support cross-border negotiations.
These experiences have given her a keen understanding of the realities of how technologies can reach, or fail to reach, the lives and rights of children. She holds a B.A. in international relations from Stanford University and a dual M.A. in conflict management and international economics from Johns Hopkins University. She speaks fluent Korean and English.
