I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science in College of Computing at Yonsei University, and the director of Yonsei University’s Cyber Security Lab. I am also the faculty advisor of the Yonsei Security Club. Prior to joining Yonsei University, I was a Post-Doctoral Scholar working with Michael Franz in Secure Systems Lab at University of California, Irvine. I received my Ph.D. and M.S. degree from the department of Computer Science at UC Irvine, and my B.S. degree from the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Seoul National University. My research interest lies in understanding and finding security vulnerabilities in systems software.
