Donghyun Kang

Graduate Student, University of Chicago

Donghyun Kang is a Ph.D. student at the University of Chicago Sociology Department. His overarching academic interest centers on the hybridization of ideas across disciplinary boundaries. Using cutting-edge network and text analysis methods, he aspires to shed light on the social conditions, processes, and consequences of interdisciplinary research. He is also interested in employing experimental designs to study the social processes that generate consensus or dissonance when conflicting theories and evidence coexist.

He also worked as a research assistant/associate at Social Network Computing Center (SNCC) in Seoul National University, where he collaborated with researchers from Cyram Inc.
