Juyoung Kim (ROK) is a non-resident Korea Foundation fellow at Pacific Forum. Juyoung has nearly five years of policy research experience in several think tanks in South Korea, including the Institute of Foreign Affairs and National Security, Future Resources Institute, and East Asia Institute. Her research interest in natural resource governance, geopolitics of energy, and multilateral energy cooperation has evolved gradually from her work experiences. She is currently completing her PhD study on the politics of governing Mozambique’s LNG industry at King’s College London. Juyoung’s research at Pacific Forum aims to explore how changes in energy security policies of the three Northeast Asian countries, China, Japan, and South Korea, have affected and been affected by changes in other country’s policy choices and how this political process has resulted in the spread of similar policy ends in the region.
