About

Hi! I am a PhD student at MIT EECS, advised by Prof. Aleksander Mądry.

I work on machine learning, focusing on problems related to robustness.

 

Bio

I received a BS in Computer Science from Cornell University in 2014, where I was fortunate to work with Prof. Ramin Zabih and Prof. Bobby Kleinberg.

Previously at MIT, I worked on understanding statistical-computational tradeoffs in high-dimensional statistics with Prof. Guy Bresler for my SM thesis.

In the past, I have interned at Waymo, Dropbox, and Google.

Personal

I grew up in Seoul and Singapore, where I attended SAS.

From 2016-18, I served in the Republic of Korea Army.

In my free time, I like lifting, rowing, playing basketball, and learning physics.
