About Me

Before joining UCSB, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Harvard SEAS. I completed my Ph.D. and M.Eng. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. I received B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at KAIST. My research aims to develop theoretically-grounded tools for trustworthy and reliable machine learning systems by drawing ideas from different fields (e.g., Information Theory, Statistics, Machine Learning, Distributed Systems). For recent publications, see my Google Scholar page.

Keywords: Machine Learning, Ethical AI, Algorithmic Fairness, Information Theory, Differential Privacy, Distributed Computing, Fault-tolerant Computing

📣 I am hiring Ph.D. students and postdoc researchers. If you’re interested, send me an email with ‘[Prospective Student]’ in the subject line. Tell me why you are interested in my line of research. I won’t be able to respond to generic emails!


  • I’ll be teaching ‘ECE 594BB: Special Topics in Computer Engineering — Ethics of Machine Learning’. See the course website.
