I am a Ph.D. student at KAIST, advised by Jinwoo Shin, and a Student Researcher at Google Research working with Jonathan Huang. I received B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics (double major) at KAIST.

My research focuses on video generation models that can be scaled up efficiently to real-world high-fidelity and long videos. Not limited to videos, I also have a broad interest in scaling generative models in other data domains (e.g., 3D scenes or graphs).

I was a research intern in the AI Algorithm Group at NVIDIA Research, working with wonderful mentors Weili Nie, De-An Huang, Boyi Li, and Anima Anandkumar. I always appreciate my great advisors Hongseok Yang and Juho Kim during my undergraduate study, who kindly advised me to be a conscientious researcher.


Nov 2023: Two of my papers (PVDM and NVP) won Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship Korea 2023.
Oct 2023: I will move to Kirkland to work at Google Research as a Student Researcher.
Sep 2023: GradNCP is accepted to NeurIPS 2023.
Jun 2023: I am attending CVPR in person. See you in Vancouver!
Mar 2023: I am joining NVIDIA Research as a research intern.
Feb 2023: Two papers (PVDM and AENIB) are accepted to CVPR 2023.
