I am an incoming Assistant Professor of computer science at the University of Texas at Austin, and I am currently a Senior Researcher at Microsoft in the Office of CTO at Azure for Operators group.

My research interests lie in the intersection of systems and networking with a focus on building software systems that improve the performance, efficiency, and resilience of data- and network-intensive applications running on emerging programmable infrastructure (e.g., programmable switches, NICs, and xPUs). I also worked on various topics in systems security and wireless systems.

I completed my PhD in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Vyas Sekar and Srinivasan Seshan. My PhD thesis introduced new abstractions and runtime systems to enable resilient and elastic in-network computing. My work was supported by Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship. Prior to CMU, I worked at KAIST as a research scientist. Before then, I received a BS and MS degree in Computer Science and Engineering from POSTECH, South Korea.
