Sangheon Pack (Birth: 4 January 1978)

Since March 2007, I joined School of Electrical Engineering, Korea University as an assistant professor. Currently, I'm leading Mobile Networks and Communications Laboratory as an associate professor. I received BS and Ph.D degrees from Dept. of Computer Engineering and School of Computer Science and Engineering, Seoul National University, in 2000 and 2005, respectively. From July 2005 to June 2006, I was a post-doctoral fellow in Broadband Communication Research Group (BBCR), University of Waterloo, Canada. From July 2006 to February 2007, I was a post-doctoral fellow in Multimedia and Mobile Communication Laboratory in Seoul National University, Korea.
