About Me

I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Graduate School of Knowledge Service Engineering (KSE) at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). Currently, I am a member of Data Mining Lab (Mar 2015 - Current). My advisor is Jae-Gil Lee. I received B.S and M.S in Dept. of Industrial & Systems Engineering at KAIST (Feb 2013, 2015 respectively). And I was a member of Risk Analysis & Management Lab (Mar 2014 - Feb 2015), during my master’s course.

My current research topic is predicting & analyzing patterns from user’s behavioral data.

From 2013-2016, I worked as a research assistant of the Exobrain WiseKB project. I developed and deployed knowledge base bootstrapping (B-box) module, by iteratively refining type information of entities. The Exobrain AI won the Korean quiz show in Nov 2016.
