Eugene Cho is a doctoral student and a University Graduate Fellow in the College of Communications. She received her master's degree in communications at Seoul National University and her bachelor's degree in business at Korea University. Before joining Penn State, she worked as a junior corporate planner over four years for several media companies including an advertising agency, an e-commerce business and a sports/entertainment newspaper. While research projects during her master's training centered on socio-psychological effects of using social media, her academic interests are also widely open to various forms of media effects caused by digital media usage. Although Eugene traveled far away from home, South Korea, to continue her academic journey at Penn State, she is excited to be with her twin sister Sugene, also a doctoral student at Ohio State.
