Short Bio

I am a Research Assistant Professor at Information and Electronics Research Institute of KAIST, working with Prof. Changho Suh. Before that, I was a postdoctoral scholar at the same institute. I received my PhD in May 2016 from the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at UC Berkeley and my Master of Science degree from the same department in December 2012, both under the supervision of Prof. Kannan Ramchandran. I was a member of Berkeley Laboratory of Information and System Sciences (BLISS, aka Wireless Foundation) and BASiCS Group. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in May 2010.
