I am a 4th year PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins. I am advised by Prof. Gregory Hager and I work closely with with Prof. Austin Reiter and Prof. Alan Yuille . I am a member of the Computational Interaction and Robotics Laboratory . My recent work focuses on computer vision methods for structured learning of compositional representation from video data. I am also interested in using synthetic data to learn complex visual tasks. I work towards applying such models to activity recognition, skill assessment in surgery and robotics.
I received both my B.S and M.S.E degrees from the Department of Computer Science at The Johns Hopkins University. Under the supervision of Prof. Russell Taylor and Prof. Austin Reiter , I worked on building real-time 3D reconstruction systems for laparoscopic endoscopic surgery. I am originally from Seoul, am a big fan of Arsenal and love playing baseball. I also serve as the president of the Korean Graduate Student Association at JHU.
