About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Purdue University. I work in FRIENDS and PurSec labs under the guidance of Prof. Dongyan Xu and Prof. Dave (Jing) Tian in the Department of Computer Science. I received my Master's degree in Electrical Engineering from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), where I was working in CORE Lab under the guidance of Prof. Kyu Ho Park. I did my undergraduate studies at Kwangwoon University in South Korea.
Note: ** I am on the academic job market this year (2020-21)! **
