I am a Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and the Graduate School of Artificial Intelligence at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST). I lead the Intelligent System Software Lab. (ISSL) at UNIST and mainly work in the areas of system software. My current research interests are in (1) system software for high-performance and efficient machine learning, (2) machine learning-augmented system software, (3) scalable parallel and distributed computing, (4) system software for large-scale and emerging memory systems, and (5) computer systems security. I received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University under the supervision of Professor Christos Kozyrakis (advisor) and Professor Kunle Olukotun (co-advisor). I received B.S. and M.S. degrees from Seoul National University and graduated from Seoul Science High School. Prior to joining UNIST, I worked as a software engineer at Microsoft and as a senior researcher at ETRI.

Research opportunities: We have fully-funded research positions and are actively looking for brilliant graduate students, undergraduate students, and postdocs. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested in conducting cutting-edge system software research. If you want to join our lab as a graduate student, you can apply to either the Department of CSE or the Graduate School of AI at UNIST.
