I am a fourth year of Ph.D. student in Computer Science at University of Arizona. I received a M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Arizona in 2014 (Advisor John H. Hartman). I received a B.E. in Computer Science and Engineering from Hankuk University of Foreign Studies in 2009 (Advisor Sangyoung Cho).

Research Interests

My research interests are in Distributed Computing, Cloud Storage Systems and BioInformatics.

Research Projects

Syndicate: A general-purpose data delivery platform that harnesses a collection of existing storage components to provide a global, scalable, and secure storage service. These include public and private cloud storage (for data durability), network caches and content distribution networks (for scalable read bandwidth), and local disks (for local read/write performance). Syndicate's goal is to allow applications to access data independent of where it is stored, and do so in a way that both minimizes the operational overhead imposed on users and maximizes the use of commodity infrastructure. website

Stargate: A filesystem to assist scientific research experiments using Hadoop by offering convenient and efficient access to data that are distributed over network.

Libra: A comparative metagenomics algorithm, that considers genetic distance and microbial abundance simultaneously using a vector-space model, and scales using Apache Hadoop. website
