Biography

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Sogang University (SOGANG) since September 2016. Before joining SOGANG, I was a research scientist in The US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (2009-2015), exploring system software and architectural challenge of integrating non-volatile memory devices into extreme-scale computing machines from several perspectives including memory extension, burst buffers, out-of-core data analytics, and fault tolerance for extreme compute and data system, an adjunct professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech, and an assistant professor in the Department of Software at Ajou University. Prior to that, I participated in several file and storage, and data center’s energy management projects at Penn State and embedded operating system projects at ETRI

I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering at Penn State as a member of computer systems laboratory (CSL) under the guidance of Prof. Anand Sivasubramaniam and Prof. Bhuvan Urgaonkar. Before coming to Penn State, I received my M.S. from KAIST and B.S. from Sogang University in both computer science.
