I am a 4th-year PhD student at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). My research interest lies in building fast and reliable data storage/processing systems by leveraging a spectrum of different memory/storage technologies including persistent memory. My advisor is Prof. Steven Swanson.
Before joining UCSD, I worked with Prof. Mahesh Balakrishnan on distributed systems at Yale University.
Before starting my graduate study, I worked as a software engineer at SAP Labs Korea on building the scalable and distributed in-memory database engine, SAP HANA.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Seoul National University, Korea.
