I am a computer vision researcher at IRIS (Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Systems), USC. My research includes 3D face/body modeling, aerial video analysis, and computational geometry. 

I studied physics (B.S.), cognitive science (M.S.), and computer engineering (Ph.D.) at Sungkyunkwan University, South Korea.  From 1999 to 2003, I was the director of research center of Dream Mirh Co. Ltd., where we developed face recognition algorithms.  This technology was transferred to a company (Korea Identification Inc.) and the systems are being deployed at some interesting places such as Incheon international airport.  From 2004 to 2006, I was a research assistant professor at ISRC (Intelligent Systems Research Center, Sungkyunkwan University. Our 3D sensing team invented signal separation coding for structured light systems. I am currently a senior research associate at the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Systems, University of Southern California, USA. The technologies developed at USC have been transferred to Primesense, OpenNI, HP, Samsung, IQ Engines, Skycomp, and Northrop Grumman Corporation.
