As Public Administration and Policy continues to celebrate International Education Week we have another international student we would like to highlight!

Meet Ji-Hyeun Hong:

Ji-Hyeun is a second year PhD student in the Department of Public Administration SPIA. Originally from South Korea, she received a master’s degree in public administration from Seoul National University and graduated from Korea University, where she studied international studies and public administration as a double major. Incredible experiences as an exchange student at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy brought her back to the United States to pursue her doctoral studies in public administration. She is even happier to come back to Georgia where she has wonderful memories with her family back in her childhood.

Ji-Hyeun is primarily interested in how organizational processes shape performance of government agencies, approached in various angles including organizational learning, performance management, and use of information technology in the federal- and state-level governments.
