About Me

Hi, I’m a master student in the Graduate school of AI at KAIST (MLAI Lab), advised by Prof. Sung Ju Hwang. I do research on Machine Learning for Graphs in these days.

I finished my B.S. (Computer Science and Engineering) and B.E. (Software Technology and Enterprise Program) degrees at Korea University. During my undergraduate years, I had some experiences in software development with a start-up career.

Also, I am a non-executive technical director of Jobshopper ((주)잡쇼퍼), an AI-based education start-up company in Seoul, Korea. During one year of full-time work experience at Jobshopper as a lead engineer and researcher, I led the development and research groups of more than 10 people.

Research Interest

My research interest is mainly on developing novel machine learning models and algorithms for graphs. I focus on representing graph-structured data such as a molecule, society, and neural network, as well as modeling interactions between knowledge, and interactions between drugs with relational graphs.
