About me

Life inspired by love and guided by knowledge - Bertrand Russell

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Austin, working with Prof. Vijay Chidambaram in the UT Systems and Storage Lab and the LASR research group. I am also closely working with Kimberly Keeton and Sharad Singhal. 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)].
