About Me

Since 2008, I have been a Ph.D. student in the ECE department at CMU. Previously, I received my B.S. in electrical engineering from Seoul National University. I am a recipient of Ph.D. fellowships from Intel (2013-2014) and the Korea Foundation for Advanced Studies (2008-2013).

Research

Within the general domain of computer architecture, the focus of my research is on the main memory subsystem. My goal is to improve its performance, energy-efficiency, and reliability. I work closely with Prof. Onur Mutlu.
