Short Summary about Myself

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate studying networked computing systems at KAIST. I received a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Security from KAIST in 2013. Previously, I received a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from KAIST in 2011.


Research Interest

I am currently working in Networked and Distributed Computing Systems Laboratory (NDSL) with Prof. KyoungSoo Park. My research interests include designing a new system platform for mobile networks and security. My research also focuses on the design and implementation of the next generation networked and distributed systems.
