Hi, there. I am an Associate Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Seoul National University (SNU). I am leading Software Platform Lab (SPL). My group research focuses on machine learning and big data systems. You can check my current research at my research group site.
I am a recipient of the 2018 Amazon Machine Learning Research Award, the 2017 Facebook Caffe2 Research Award, the 2017 Amazon Cloud Credits for Research Award, the 2015 Naver Young Faculty Award, and the 2014 Microsoft Research Faculty Fellowship.
I had a wonderful sabbatical at Facebook, Menlo Park from mid 2016 to early 2017. Before joining SNU, I was a Principal Scientist at Microsoft. Before joining Microsoft, I led the systems research group at Yahoo! Research Silicon Valley for six months and worked as a Research Scientist for one and half years. My Yahoo! research projects include Mobius (data management platform for cloud-connected mobile apps) and workload-driven big data system designs. Before joining Yahoo! Research, I was a Research Scientist at Intel Research Berkeley from 2008 to 2011. I worked on CloneCloud, TaintDroid, and RouteBricks projects. Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the International Computer Science Institute. I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley, an M.S. in Computer Science from Stanford University, and a B.S. and an M.S. from the Electronic Engineering Department at Seoul National University.
