I'm interested in solving real-world problems using tools from: Information Theory, Coding Theory, Signal Processing, Statistics. My work during the first two years of my PhD focused on making communication systems more energy-efficient by using energy-adaptive coding strategies [3,5]. But I also participated in other projects such as spatio-temporal filtering of epliptic foci, or dictionary learning using LDPC codes.
I am being advised by Prof. Pulkit Grover.

Other Projects

  • Spatio-temporal Filtering for Epileptic Focus Localization
    This was course project for Convex Optimization class (Spring 2015, CMU). You can find my final poster here.
  • Dictionary Learning with LDPC codes
    This was course project for Machine Learning class (Spring 2015, CMU) with Yongjune Kim and Mark Whiting. You can find our final presentation pdf and video here: [pdf] [Video]
  • faceScrap: Scrapping useful information from your social media wall
    This is the final product from CS Project course (Fall 2013, KAIST).
  • ICISTS-KAIST: Internatianal Conference for the Integeration of Science, Technology, and Society
    I was an onganizer committee of this awesome conference in 2010 and 2011.


I like traveling.
