I am a Ph.D. Student in electronic and electrical engineering at the Ewha Womans University, advised by Prof. Ji-Hoon Kim.
As an independent and self-motivated Ph.D. student, I have broad experiences such as designing, training neural networks, and implementing my hardware designs into chips. My current research interest is mainly in accelerating large-sized neural networks with consideration of in-memory processing. My goal is to become an expert in system-on-chip design with professional skills related to energy-efficient systems and hardware acceleration.

Extracurricular activities

I took a gap year in 2018 (Japan).
Learned how to survive in an unfamiliar country.
Went through some hard times at first, but finally, I got a lot of precious memories.
All such experiences fueled my passion for work and everything.
