Acceleration of AI

Harvard University



I am a Research Associate of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences of Harvard University. My interests span the areas of AI, computer architecture and systems software, starting with the algorithms and going all the way down to the lower layers of abstraction to build specialized custom chips. These days, I’m working on solving the practical challenges of deploying AI on the cloud at scale through model optimizations and efficient computing.

I’ve worked at Samsung Electronics designing mobile processors for smartphones and also done research at Qualcomm and IBM on efficient machine learning accelerator architectures.

I grew up in Korea, Singapore and Illinois, and enjoy playing sports and hiking new mountains outside of work.
