Sangick "Sunny" Jeon is a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at Stanford University. He is currently completing a dissertation project that uses formal, empirical, and experimental methods to identify viable strategies for promoting peace and social cohesion in ethnically and religiously divided societies.
