Myeongjae Jeon

Associate professor @ UNIST CS
Research Team: OMNIA

I have openings for graduate students and intern positions. Please find on-going projects from our OMNIA LAB, and contact me by email if interested.

I am an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST)Prior to joining UNIST in 2018 fall, I spent several years in industry with Systems Research Group at Microsoft Research Redmond (2015 - 2018) and with Systems Research Group at the ARM Research (2014 - 2015). My prior research work has been deployed in several production systems in Microsoft, including Bing search engine, Open Platform for AI (OpenPAI), and Azure telemetry monitoring system, bringing real-world impacts from systems research.  Currently at UNIST, I attempt to realize such values in the context of AI systems, real-time big data analytics, and systems for new HW, with my team members at OMNIA Lab.

I finished my Ph.D. in computer science at Rice University in May 2014, under the supervision of Prof. Alan L. Cox and Prof. Scott Rixner. During my Ph.D. I actively collaborated with Dr. Yuxiong He and Dr. Sameh Elnikety through 4 internships at Microsoft Research. I received the M.S. degree in computer science from KAIST and the B.E. degree in computer engineering from Kwangwoon University.
