Hello! I'm a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), advised by Prof. Sung-Eui Yoon. Currently I am a member of Scalable Graphics, Vision, and Robotics (SGVR) Lab. I am also having the privilege of working closely with Prof. Daehyung Park at KAIST.

β€’ Research interest: I am particularly interested in increasing the autonomy of robots in various ways: πŸ§‘β€πŸ’»βž‘πŸ€–βž•πŸ§ . My research interest spans the following keywords: Reinforcement learning, Embodied AI, 3D Vision, Deep learning, Robotics, Motion Generation/Planning, Task and Motion Planning, Agile and Robust Control, Navigation, Graphics, etc. While my interests may appear broad, I am continuously drawn to exploring new research domains and connecting disparate fields. I hold a belief that all research fields eventually converge into robotics with the goal of enhancing quality of human-being life.
