About Me

I am currently a second year Ph.D. student in the Department of Statistics at University of Wisconsin–Madison, under the supervision of Prof. Zhengjun Zhang. My research interests focus on extreme value theory and dependence modeling via copulas, with applications to quantitative finance and risk management. Prior to joining the program, I was a visiting research intern in Computational Statistics Research Group at Seoul National University led by Prof. Joong-Ho Won. Before that I worked as a software developer at SAP Labs Korea. I obtained my Master's degree in Statistics at Columbia University, and Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering and in Economics at Seoul National University.
