  • (News!) In fall 2017, I will be joining the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at POSTECH as an assistant professor. I am actively seeking self-motivated, resourceful, and dedicated students who are interested in building hardware/software systems for computer vision & machine learning. I am looking to hire several graduate students (as well as undergraduate research interns) immediately in the fall of 2017. If you're interested in joining my research group, please apply through POSTECH's graduate admission system, indicating you're interested in working with me. Please also shoot me a *short* email, briefly introducing yourself and explaining what you'd like to achieve through your graduate school experience.

About Me

  • I am a Senior Research Scientist working at the architecture research group at NVIDIA. I had an opportunity to work on a number of exciting projects at NVIDIA that span several areas in computing, which include ASIC designs, computer system architecture, runtime systems, and application & workload characterization with an emphasis on deep neural networks (DNNs). Initially at NVIDIA, I worked on developing microarchitectural support for high-performance GPU cache replacement policies. More recently, I have been working in the domain of deep learning, trying to come up with neat architectural enhancements to the GPU hardware/software stack so that NVIDIA maintains its leadership in the areas of machine learning. For instance, I led the research and development of the virtualized DNN runtime system, a high-performance GPU memory virtualization solution for DNN training. I was also the technical lead on the architecture design, implementation, and evaluation of the sparse CNN accelerator, an ASIC developed by NVIDIA Research aiming towards achieving high energy-efficiency for DNN inference.
  • In the past, I earned my Ph.D. degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 2014, under the guidance of professor Mattan Erez. I received my M.S. and B.E. degree from KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) and Sogang University, in 2009 and 2007, respectively.
