My research interests lie in the intersection of computer systems and networking with a current focus on making data centers faster and more efficient. Recently, I have been working on designing useful abstractions and primitives for emerging hardware technologies such as programmable switches/network interface cards, and Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) to unleash their full potentials, and leverage them to build high-perfomance networked systems. In the past, I worked on various topics in systems security and mobile wireless networks.

At CMU, I am fortunate to be co-advised by Professors Srinivasan Seshan and Vyas Sekar. Prior to CMU, I worked at KAIST for three years as a research scientist. Before then, I received a BS and MS degree in Computer Science and Engineering from POSTECH, South Korea.

I am a recipient of the 2019 Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship.
