Youngjae Kim is an assistant professor in the Graduate School of Computer Engineering at Ajou University. He manages the Future Systems and Storage Technologies (FAST) Laboratory where a wide spectrum of research activities in the areas of computer systems, operating systems, distributed and parallel systems and storage technologies are being undertaken. He received his B.S. degree in computer science from Sogang University in 2001, and his M.S. in computer science from KAIST (in 2003) (Advisor: Prof. Seung-Ryoul Maeng), and his Ph.D. in computer science and engineering from Pennsylvania State University (Primary Advisor: Prof. Anand Sivasubramaniam, Co-Advisor: Prof. Bhuvan Urgaonkar). After his Ph.D., he had worked as a staff scientist at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) for U.S Department of Energy in 2009-2015, where he was fortunate to work with a number of great researchers, including Galen Shipman, Sudharshan Vazhkudai, Scott Atchley, Geoffroy R. Valle ́e, Sarp Oral and Feiyi Wang. In 2014-2015, he was a team leader for Non-volatile Memory, exploring non-volatile memory devices from perspective including memory extension, burst buffer file systems, and out-of-core data analytics for future extreme compute and data systems. In 2011-2014, he had been affiliated with Georgia Institute of Technology as an adjunct professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He had also worked as a research engineer in the Embedded OS team at ETRI in 2003-2004.
I'm generally interested in areas such as computer systems, operating systems, distributed systems, parallel systems, file and storage systems, and data analytic systems.
