My name is Hojung Joo, and I am a Ph.D. student at the Department of Political Science at the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor.

My recent research interests are as follows: locating the optimal trade-off between enforcement credibility and bargaining flexibility when promoting cooperation, analyzing how the asymmetrical distribution of legitimacy and resources can affect the selection of bargaining partners and strategies, and how third parties can redress such asymmetries.

I completed my B.A. and M.A., both in Political Science, at Yonsei University.
