Before joining UC Irvine in 2018, I earned my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2018), working with Professor Arvind. I have earned my B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Seoul National University (2010).

Research Interests

My research is in innovative system architectures for low-cost high-performance computing.
My two prominent tools right now are Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) and reconfigurable hardware accelerators.
