About me

Life inspired by love and guided by knowledge - Bertrand Russell

I am a research engineer at Hewlett Packard Labs. I obtained my Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Austin, where I worked with Prof. Vijay Chidambaram in the UT Systems and Storage Lab and the LASR research group. I was a recipient of the 2021 Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship. I received my masters in Computer Science from UNIST (Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology) and my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from Hongik University, where I worked with Prof. Sam H. Noh.

My research aims at designing next-generation systems for emerging memory/storage (e.g., PM, NVM) and disaggregation technologies (e.g., RDMA, CXL interconnects). In particular, I have been mainly working on building efficient and reliable data-intensive systems for Persistent Memory (PM) and Disaggregated Persistent Memory (DPM). My work ranges from system component designs like indexing data structures [WORT (FAST’17), RECIPE (SOSP’19)] to diverse full-system studies, such as key-value stores, file systems [PMAL (ISPASS’17), SplitFS (SOSP’19)], and transaction processing systems [iDO (MICRO’18)] for a local PM setting. Moreover, I have extended my research to distributed systems for its disaggregation [DINOMO (PVLDB’22)].
