About

Research Interest: Graph Mining, Machine Learning, Social Network Analysis, Stream Mining

I am a PhD student in Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University. I am very fortunate to be advised by Prof. Christos Faloutsos. Before that, I was a software developer in SAP Labs Korea. I received M.S. in Computer Science, under Prof. Jehee Lee, and B.S. in Electronic Engineering at Seoul National University.
