I used to be a Ph.D. student in Computer Sciences at UW-Madison, where I studied programming languages with
Loris D'Antoni and Thomas Reps.
You can find my 'old' homepage (which I still keep up to date) here.
Currently, I am on leave from my Ph.D. studies and working as a contracted researcher with Chung-Kil Hur
as alternative military service for South Korea.
My primary research interests are in topics from programming languages and verification.
I am also interested in the application of these topics to other CS fields, such as security or computer architecture.
Recently, I have been working in between the intersection of ideas from program analysis and program synthesis,
in order to explore fundamental questions behind the theory and practice of synthesizing programs.

Awards and Recognitions
I received the 1st Place Graduate Award at the Student Research Competition at POPL 2020, for my work on "Proving Unrealizability for Imperative Syntax-Guided Synthesis Problems".
When I was a Ph.D. student, I was supported by a grant from the Korea Foundation for Advanced Studies (currently on hold).
