I received B.S. in physics from Seoul National University. During my undergraduate, I studied the theory of open quantum systems (i.e. non-unitary evolution of open quantum systems) and its connection with quantum thermalization, under the guidance of Prof. Uwe R. Fischer 

I am now a physics PhD student at Yale University (also affiliated with Yale Quantum Institute), and supervised by Prof. Liang Jiang. Currently, I am working on bosonic quantum error-correcting codes and their implementation in circuit QED systems. On a more theoretical side, I am interested in quantum Shannon theory and, in particular, quantum capacity of bosonic Gaussian loss channels. I am also trying to find explicit encoding and decoding strategies achieving the quantum capacity of Gaussian loss channels. Along this direction, I proved (in joint work with Victor V. Albert and Liang Jiang) that Gottesman-Kitaev-Preskill (GKP) codes achieve the quantum capacity of Gaussian loss channels up to a constant number of qubits per channel use: https://arxiv.org/abs/1801.07271v1
