I am an Assistant Professor in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Kansas. I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2013. Previously, I worked at Samsung Electronics as a senior system software engineer. I occationally write random thoughts on a blog (in 한글). I also enjoy reading and running.


My research goal is to build predictable, robust, and high performance computing infrastructure (OS, architecture, and middleware) for embedded real-time systems. My research interests include: [Google Scholar] [DBLP] [GitHub]

I am looking for motivated PhD students who are interested in systems research. Experiences and interests in 1) FPGA and multicore memory hierarchy, 2) Linux kernel, and 3) Autonomous systems (autonomous cars, UAVs) are valued. A PhD position is avaialble on the topic of microarchitectural side-channel attack resistant OS and architecture for CPS. Please contact me if you are interested and have solid background on modern computer architecture and OS.
