[email protected] | Google Scholar | CV

I am a senior researcher at Microsoft in the Office of CTO at Azure for Operators. I recently completed my PhD in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Vyas Sekar and Srinivasan Seshan.

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 from POSTECH, South Korea.

My research interests lie in the intersection of computer systems and networking with a recent focus on in-network computing. Recently, I have been designing new abstractions and runtime systems for heterogeneous programmable data plane devices such as network switches and NICs to enable elastic and resilient in-network computing. In the past, I worked on various topics in systems security and wireless networks.

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