About Me

▶ Curriculum vitae

Hello, I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Electronics and Information Engineering at Korea Aerospace University (KAU), where I direct the Intelligent and Interactive Systems Lab (IIS Lab). I am interested in computer vision and its application to build intelligent and interactive systems (e.g., robots). I have extensive research experience in researching and developing diverse intelligent and interactive systems using many software tools and tecnologies such as deep learning frameworks (e.g.,Tensorflow) and Robot Operating System (ROS).

My work has been funded by grants and contracts from the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF), the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), the GRRC Program of Gyeonggi Province, and Korea Aerospace University (KAU).

Before joining KAU, I spent about two years in the ObjectVideo Labs of There I worked mostly on vessel recognition in maritime surveillance videos with Office of Naval Research (ONR) to support the US Navy’s mission.

Before joining ObjectVideo Labs, I was a graduate student in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University. I worked with Professor David Crandall on Computer Vision for Activity Learning and Professor Selma Šabanović on Human-Robot Interaction. I completed the Ph.D degree in July 2018.

Before IU, I was a software engineer at Samsung Electronics and received B.S. in Information and Communication Engineering from Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) in 2006 and M.S in Electrical and Computer Engineering from SKKU in 2008.
