                                                                                      February 2, 2011


• Motivation
 During my Ph. D., I focused on identification and characterization of cucurbit-infecting viruses
occurring on cucurbit plants specifically in Korea, Japan and Myanmar. My study results regarding
to diversity pattern evaluation prepared important information on mechanisms of host differentiation,
new virus emergence and also evolutionary history. The ultimate aim of research was to elucidate a
proper control strategy for cucurbit-infecting viruses.
 Based on my technical experience and scientific background, I hope to continue a challenging
research in plant virology, and contribute significantly to the development of this field. Plant virus
epidemiology, its evolution and interaction between virus and host are between those topics I am
deeply interested to become more involved.
