Department of Communication
Rinseo Park’s (she/her/hers) research explores issues of “distance” in the context of communication. She aims to (1) map individuals in a multi-dimensional space and (2) track their longitudinal trajectories to examine the person-to-person or person-to-subject distances. Especially, she is interested in understanding how individual decision-making diverges from policy actors’ (e.g., political elites or scientific experts) views and the underlying cognitive processes.
Before joining the lab, Rinseo collaborated with government agencies in South Korea including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) and the National Institute of Environmental Research (NIER). Being the author of three primer-type books (i.e., propensity score analysis, missing data analysis, complex survey data analysis), Rinseo is also motivated in advancing quantitative methods into meaningful improvements in communication research. She received B.A.s in Communication and Statistics, M.A. in Statistics from Yonsei University.
