I am a Master student in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at ETH Zürich. I am currently visiting Carnegie Mellon University for a research internship under the supervision of Prof. Yun William Yu and Prof. Gunnar Rätsch. I graduated with BEng in Computer Science and Engineering and BSc in Biological Sciences from Seoul National University and was fortunate to work with Prof. Martin Steinegger and Prof. Johannes Söding during my undergraduate years.

Generally, I am interested in building fast and efficient software for biological sequence analysis, particularly in the context of protein sequence comparison and metagenomic analysis.

Such general interest can be landed on specific techniques such as:

  • Smart data structures / algorithms
  • Careful subsampling / dimension reduction
  • System engineering, parallelization, and optimization
  • Tailored hardware acceleration

Apart from my academic journey, I have previously interned at Roche and Abiosciences Inc. I am keen on developing software that can be used in the real world and have a positive impact on society.
