I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at Stanford University, working with Prof. Gordon Wetzstein at the Stanford Computational Imaging Lab. I am broadly interested in Optics and Photonics, with a particular focus on nanophotonics and metasurfaces. My recent research at the intersection of optics and computer vision focuses on developing next-generation optical imaging, display, and computing systems, utilizing advanced photonic devices and AI-driven algorithms.

I completed my PhD at Seoul National University in 2021 under the guidance of Prof. Byoungho Lee at the Optical Engineering and Quantum Electronics Lab. For my undergraduate studies, I double-majored in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Physics, also at Seoul National University.
