I am a second year PhD student in Georgia Institute of Technology, advised by Drs. Umakishore Ramachandran and Tushar Krishna. I received my bachelor’s degree in Business and Computer Science in Seoul National University(SNU), Korea. Prior to coming to Atlanta, I started my career at Moloco as a Software Engineer for 1.5 years. During my PhD career I have interned in companies such as Google.
My research focus is on Edge computing, with a broad interest in distributed systems and hardware architectures. Currently I am looking into systems that can consider the constraints of Edge environments when managing resources. I believe Edge computing will open up the door to a new paradigm, just as cloud computing did. The direct impact this has on our lives, through venues such as smart cities, excites me most about this field.
