Hi! I am a 4th year Ph.D. student at UNC Chapel Hill advised by Prof. Jan-Michael Frahm. My research focuses on computer vision and machine learning, especially on image retrieval and scene recognition. I am interested in data-driven approaches and leveraging weak labels.

I received M.S. degree in EECS at Seoul National University under the supervision of Prof. Kyoung Mu Lee in 2012, and B.S. in Electrical Engineering at KAIST in 2010. My work on detecting skewed rotational symmetry in real-world images won the Symmetry Detection Competition at CVPR 2011, and was awarded a bronze prize at Samsung Humantech 2012. Before coming to Chapel Hill, I worked as a researcher at KIST and Pusan National University in Korea, working on object recognition and speech recognition, respectively.
