Hye Yeon Park
Hye Yeon graduated from Chonbuk National University in South Korea and has both a bachelor's and a master's degree in Landscape Architecture. While developing her master's thesis, she realized that both a cultural and historical approach are essential for ecological restoration design in conflict areas. Moreover, experience working with various ecologists at the National Institute of Ecology enabled her to understand the importance of sustainable environmental planning focused on harmony between nature and humans. These valuable experiences have shaped her academic goals, and she hopes that studying at Utah State University will allow her to grow as a specialist in the field of ecocultural planning.
