    Bio I am a postdoctoral scholar at Genetics Department, Stanford University. Before I moved to Stanford, I served as a Simons postdoctoral fellow at Joint Genome Institute (JGI). I have earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science Department at Stony Brook University. My dissertation is about “Algorithms and applications in genome assembly using long read sequencing technology”, advised by Prof. Michael Schatz, Simons Center for Quantitative Biology, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL). I received my Master’s degree from Carnegie Mellon University. The master thesis was published at 70th IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference. My undergraduate degree with Cum Laude was received at Seoul National University in Korea and worked for 4 years at AhnLab, Inc., where I programmed Windows kernel-level file system filter driver for V3 anti-virus program.

    I am interested in developing methods (tools/software) using statistical machine learning and deep learning using clinical data and/or long reads produced by 3rd generation sequencing technology such as PacBio, Moleculo, Oxford Nanopore, etc. This includes de novo genome assembly, single cell, cancer data analysis, time series data analysis and population structure to analyze big data, infer critical factors, predict the future and discover biological importance.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests The broad goal of my research interest is to identify intrinsic and extrinsic mediators of tumor growth and plasticity. My past research experiences will synergize with the expertise of Dr. Monte Winslow’s laboratory to allow the discovery of novel mechanisms of cancer progression. The integration of our molecular measurements with multiple types of ‘omics’ data will ultimately improve the diagnostic precision medicine.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on the cell biology and biochemistry underlying the symbiotic relationship between corals and their partners, microscopic algae of the genus Symbiodinium. The algae live in the coral's gut tissue and provide its host products of photosynthesis while the coral provides inorganic carbon, nitrogen, and a safe habitat. I'm investigating the signaling pathways involved in 1) recognizing the correct algae partner 2) transfer of nutrients between the two.
