I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree at KAIST, Republic of Korea. 

Since 2008, I have been working at the Robotics and Computer Vision (RCV) Lab. with Prof. In So Kweon as my advisor. During the alternative military service (2011~2014), I had been a junior researcher at System IC Center (Digital TV part), LG Electronics. I received my B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Yonsei University in 2007 and from KAIST in 2010 respectively. My research interests include computer vision/graphics, deep learning, and industrial applications of artificial intelligence.
