I am a third year Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Statistics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, advised by Prof. Miaoyan Wang. Prior to joining the Ph.D. program in September 2018, I received B.S. in Mathematical Science and Statistics at Seoul National University.

Research Interests

Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in the intersection of statistics, machine learning, and optimization. I mainly focus on developing statistical tools for analyzing matrix or tensor valued data.
