I am an integrated M.S & Ph.D student advised by Professor Jaegul Choo.

My research interests lie in machine learning and computer vision for deep understanding of 3-dimensional scenes, with particular focus on neural volume rendering techniques. Previously published works span point cloud registration algorithm, dynamic object removing algorithm in 3D map consturcted with SLAM, and graph-based rotation invariant representation learning of images.
