Seongkyung Cho

Assistant professor of public policy, Duke Kunshan University

Her primary research interests lie at the intersection of housing policy, public policy process, and marginalized populations. She is especially interested in how different policy actors and contexts affect public policy processes and outcomes, with a special focus on housing policy in the U.S. and East Asian countries. Her teaching interests at Duke Kunshan include computational social science and public policy analysis.
Methodologically, she has employed a wide range of analytical approaches to understanding complex processes of public policy. In her doctoral dissertation, she examined U.S. landlords' perceptions and strategies toward housing vouchers, based on analyses of text data scraped from online forums.
Cho has a B.A. in political science and a B.A. in food and resource economics, and an M.A. in sociology, all from Korea University, and a Ph.D. in public administration and policy from Arizona State University. Before joining Duke Kunshan, she was a doctoral student associate at the Center on Technology, Data, and Society at Arizona State University.
