I am a graduate student at UCSD being advised by Young-Han Kim and Sanjoy Dasgupta. I received my B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering and B.S. in Mathematical Sciences highest distinction (with minor in Physics) from Seoul National University, in 2015. I am a reciepient of Kwanjeong scholarship for Ph.D. study.
I am broadly interested in the interplay among information theory, learning theory, and statistics. In particular, I have worked on information measures and its applications, universal information processing algorithms, and nonparametric statistics such as k-nearest neighbor methods.
