✨ About me

I am a student in the CSSLAB (Computer System Security Lab) at UNIST (Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea), under supervision of Prof. Hyungon Moon.
My research interests are in system security, hardware security, and secure hardware system.

I love swimming and traveling. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

📄 Research Interests

  • Building secure software system

    I am particularly interested in secure KVS(Key-value store) system. I am interested in improving the security of the system.

  • Software compartmentalization

    Software compartmentalization is an approach that reduces the impact of one vulnerability by splitting software into pieces.

  • Hardware extension for security

    Hardware extensions for secure system.

🔐 Research Goal

  • I want to make secure computer systems for everyone.
