About me:
I am a postdoc research fellow in the Department of EECS at the University of Michigan. I am currently working with Prof. Alfred O. Hero.
I received my Ph.D. and M.S. from MIT, and my B.S. (with summa cum laude) from KAIST in Korea, all in the Department of EECS.

Research Interests:
I want to provide a theoretical framework for data information science.
As part of this, I am working on a theory to quantify the value of information,
and developing methodologies to efficiently extract and exploit the most relevant information for statistical inference problems.
I also aim to build up a mathematical framework for interactive machine learning with humans.

Research Areas:
Statistical Inference
Information Theory
Data Science
Statistical Machine Learning
Quantum Information Theory
Coding Theory
