I am a Faculty Fellow of Computer Science at NYU Courant hosted by Prof. Saining Xie.

I received Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), where I was advised by Prof. In So Kweon. Prior to that, I earned my B.S. degree in electrical computer engineering from Seoul National University (SNU). During my Ph.D. studies, I had the opportunity to intern at Adobe Research (San Jose, CA) and Meta AI (Menlo Park, CA). I am a recipient of both the Microsoft Research Asia PhD Fellowship and the Google Research PhD Fellowship. 

My research focuses on designing effective visual models to understand our worlds better and efficient learning frameworks for utilizing data at scale with less human supervision.
