News! Starting March 2021, I will join the department of Computer Science at Yonsei University as an Assistant Professor. I will be leading Cyber Security Lab.

I am an Assistant Professor in the department of Computer Science at Yonsei University. I was a Post-Doctoral Scholar working with Michael Franz in Secure Systems Lab at University of California, Irvine. I received my Ph.D. and M.S. degree from the department of Computer Science at UC Irvine, and my B.S. degree from the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Seoul National University. My research interest lies in understanding and finding security vulnerabilities in systems software.
