Hi! I’m a Ph.D. student at the Human-Centered Computer Systems Lab under the supervision of professor Youngki Lee. I build a software platform for edge devices that enable real-time mixed reality applications for everyone.

I have previous research experiences in medical image processing and deep learning from my masters at Deep Learning and Image Processing Group in Computer Graphics and Image Processing Lab.

I was an enthusiastic game engine developer graduated from DigiPen Institute of Technology and worked for Minecraft: Education Edition at Microsoft Studios.
