Brief Bio

I am an Associate Professor at School of Computing, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and am leading Data Mining Lab. Before that, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at IBM Almaden Research Center and a Postdoc Research Associate at Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. At IBM, I was one of the key contributors to IBM Smart Analytics Optimizer. At University of Illinois, I worked on spatio-temporal data mining with Prof. Jiawei Han. I earned the Ph.D degree under the supervision of Prof. Kyu-Young Whang from KAIST in 2005. My research interests encompass mobility and stream data mining, deep learning-based big data analysis, and distributed deep learning. Our lab has been selected as a SW Star Lab by the Ministry of Science and ICT in 2020.
