Hi, I am currently a fourth-year PhD student at the Stanford Computational Imaging Lab, advised by Prof. Gordon Wetzstein. I am generally interested in developing computational optical systems at the intersection of graphics, optics, AI, and vision science. Lately, I have been developing holographic display systems incorporating machine learning towards next-generation VR/AR displays. My research has been partly supported by a Meta Research PhD Fellowship, a SPIE Optics and Photonics Education Scholarship, a Kwanjeong Scholarship, a Korean Government Scholarship, and a GPU gift from NVIDIA.

I received my Master's degree in EE at Stanford University. Previously, I did my undergrad at Seoul National University, where I was fortunate to be a recipient of The Presidential Science Scholarship and be advised by Prof. Deog-Kyoon Jeong, Prof. Soo-Mook Moon, and Prof. Byoungho Lee.

Please see my for more details. (Last update: 3/2024)
