About [CV]

Jungseul Ok is a research associate in Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering, University of Washington, WA, US, where he works with Prof. Sewoong Oh. He completed Ph.D program in School of Electrical Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), South Korea, under the supervision of Prof. Yung Yi and Prof. Jinwoo Shin. After graduation, he also worked with Prof. Alexandre Proutiere as a postdoctoral researcher in School of Electrical Engineering at KTH, Sweden.

His research focus is understanding and improving practical systems based on theoretical model and analysis, where the systems of particular interest associate with graphical representations, e.g., Markov decision process, wireless network, social network, and crowdsourcing system. Here are some keywords:

Reinforcement Learning - regret minimization, Markov decision process, multi-armed bandit

Social Network - strategic diffusion, influence maximization, Ising model, hitting time analysis

Learning in Graphical Model - crowdsourced classification, belief propagation, correlation decay

Wireless Network - rate adaptation for 802.11n/ac, network virtualization, multi-armed bandit
