Professor @ CELL


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Information and Communication Engineering at DGIST. I am also a director of the Computation Efficient Learning Lab (CELL). My group is working on designing various learning methodologies based on brain-inspired hyperdimensional computing. We are also exploring how to utilize state-of-the-art learning solutions such as deep learning to build future systems with a focus on alternative computing and embedded systems.

Computer Scientiests like putting some comments as always!

My background is computer software, and I love computer programming. I have also studied many embedded systems and computer architecture-related topics, the ones of my primary research in my Ph.D. study. I used to play keyboards in different meanings - please come visit this or this this to listen my song!
