I am a PhD student at Concurrency and Parallelism Laboratory, KAIST School of Computing. I am really grateful to be adviced by Prof. Jeehoon Kang. Prior to KAIST, I received my M.S from Concordia University (Montreal, Canada). I am interested in understanding how different systems work thoroughly, and then make them secure and fast.
