Dr Gregory Evon completed his BA and MA in Korean and East Asian Studies at Indiana University, Bloomington and then came to the Australian National University in 1995 in order to continue his PhD under Prof. Ken Wells. Since 2001 Greg has taught at the University of New South Wales where he is now a Senior Lecturer in the School of Languages and Linguistics.

Since 2000 he has published articles on the Buddhist literature of Han Yongun (1879-1944), on the classical poetry of Kim Sisup (1435-1493) and Yi Kyubo (1168-1241), as well as articles on premodern Korean literary and intellectual history. At present, he is working on a book on the role of Buddhism in the shift from classical to modern literature in Korea.
