I am a Ph.D. student at Algorithmic Intelligence Laboratory @ KAIST, advised by Jinwoo Shin. Currently, I am working closely with Kihyuk Sohn at Google Research.

Prior to this, I received B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics (double major) at KAIST under the supervision of Hongseok Yang, who kindly advised me to be a conscientious reseacher.



✈️ Nov 2022: I will attend NeurIPS 2022 as offline!
🎉 Sep 2022: “Scalable Neural Video Representations with Learnable Positional Features” is accepted to NeurIPS 2022.


My research focuses on designing memory-/computation-efficient generative models. In particular, I am interested in solving this challenge by constructing generative models with various structural assumptions and regularizations in latent space. Currently, I am actively working on video synthesis, but not limited to; other complex data (e.g., 3D scenes and graphs) and applications are also in my interest. Besides, I also have an interest in the robustness of neural networks to the distributional shift.
