Seiyun Shin


Hello everyone! I am currently in the process of applying to U.S. graduate schools to start on a Ph.D. program in 2019.

I am working as a research associate in Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), a government-funded research institute in South Korea, as part of the mandatory military service. Prior to joining ETRI, I received my M.S. degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), under the supervision of Prof. Changho Suh. Also, I received B.S. degrees, Summa Cum Laude with honors, in Electrical Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (double-major) from KAIST in 2012.

Research Interests

I seek to gain insight into fundamental problems that are practically relevant. My research interests lie in the areas of information theory, optimization, statistics, and their applications in wireless communications and data science. With these disciplines, I desire to achieve two intertwined goals. One is to characterize the fundamental limits of estimation and learning from data; the other is to develop efficient algorithms that approach the limits.
