Research Interests

  I am a first year of Ph.D student in Computer Science department at the University of Maryland. I am currently working in the Perception and Robotic Group(PRG) supervised by Prof. Yiannis Aloimonos and Dr. Cornelia Fermuller. My broad research interests are solving real-world problems. To be specific, during my master’s period, I studied control theory and machine learning to handle non-linear characteristics of hardware, especially applying to magnetic bearings. After graduation, I was studying and researching computer vision and graphics at AI research center, KIST. Over the past three years of researching at KIST to solve reconstruction of multiple broken potteries, I’ve developed a total system that is analogous with SfM(structure-from-motion) pipeline, achieving the state-of-the-art result(ICCV 21).
  Overall, I want to design a general-purpose system that can autonomously define and solve multi-disciplinary problems under any conditions, consequently improving our life quality. My research interests include the areas below.

  • Machine Learning
  • Robotics
  • Computer Vision and Graphics
  • Control Theory and Optimization
