Hey, I’m Shoan Yin!

I grew up in a small town on the Canada side of the US-Canadian border, went to college at Cornell, and now I'm back in Ithaca after taking a circuitous route through Korea and Japan.

In college, I followed a whim to learn Japanese after having a Japanese roommate in a study abroad program in Beijing. This led me to living in Kobe, Japan after graduation and then returning to Ithaca, where I am back at Cornell as a doctoral candidate studying medical anthropology and Japan.

When I'm not teaching or working on my research, I play a lot of classical piano and occasionally perform. I'm also a fan of culinary experimentation, and accumulating more knowledge about wine.

I love being here for the wine shop/restaurant to population ratio and the lush Ithaca summers.
