About Me

I am a research fellow in the Data Science Group at Institute for Basic Science, working with Meeyoung Cha. My research interests include predictive analytics by modeling effective features and architectures. Currently, I am working on customs fraud detection in collaboration with the World Customs Organization. I obtained my Ph.D. in Knowledge Service Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), advised by Jae-Gil Lee. My thesis research focused on customer revisit prediction using in-store sensor data.


If you are interested in predictive analytics projects using point-of-interest dataset, please contact me.
