I am a senior associate in Allen & Overy's international arbitration team based in Singapore. Before joining the Singapore office, I practised arbitration in Allen & Overy's Hong Kong and London offices.

I have represented States and private clients in the energy, infrastructure, finance, private equity, pharmaceutical, automotive, and TMT sectors for both commercial and investment treaty arbitrations under various rules, including the ICSID, ICC, LCIA, UNCITRAL, HKIAC and SIAC rules. I have also advised in relation to enforcing and challenging arbitral awards in different jurisdictions.

I was born and raised in Korea and studied law at Oxford University (Magdalen College) as a STX Corporation Scholar. I also obtained the Postgraduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL) from the University of Hong Kong and am admitted as a solicitor in Hong Kong.
