Life is full of Serendipity.




(In Korean: 인생이란 아주 먼 옛날에 신이 나를 위해서 미리 준비해 놓은 소중하고 값진 것들을 하나씩 찾아 가는 기쁨.)

I am a Professor at Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Seoul National University, Korea. I am also leading the Knowledge Discovery and Database Research Laboratory at Seoul National University. Before that, I was an Assistant Professor at Computer Science Department of KAIST (Korea), a member of technical staff (MTS) at Bell Laboratories (Murray Hill) and a research staff at IBM Almaden Research Center (San Jose). In Bell Laboratories, I was a key contributor with Rajeev Rastogi to the Serendip data mining project and, in IBM Almaden Research Center, I was a member of Quest Data Mining project led by Rakesh Agrawal. I have visited Data Management, Exploration & Mining group in Microsoft Research as a visiting scientist for the summer/winter breaks of 2001 and 2002. I also worked as a summer intern mentored by Surajit Chaudhuri at Hewlett-Packard Laboratories for two summers in 1992 and 1993. I received a Ph.D under the supervision of Professor Timos Sellis in Computer Science from University of Maryland at College Park in 1993. I received B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Seoul National University in 1986, and MS degree in Computer Science from University of Maryland at College Park in 1988. My graduate study was supported by University of Maryland at College Park and Korean Government Overseas Full Merit Scholarship.

I was previously an Associate Editor for the IEEE TKDE, VLDB as well as PVLDB journals, and served as a Program Co-chair for PAKDD 2003, WWW 2014, ICDE 2015, APWeb 2016, BigComp 2019 and ICDM 2019 conferences. I have been serving on Program Committees of the leading database and data mining conferences including SIGMOD, SIGKDD, ICDE, ICDM, EDBT, VLDB, WWW and CIKM. I became an ACM fellow and an IEEE fellow for the contributions to scalable data mining and query processing in 2013 and 2019 respectively. I am currently a member of the VLDB Endowment Board of Trustees and a steering committee member of PAKDD as well as DASFAA conferences. I have been working in the area of data mining, data privacy, recommendation systems, semi-structured data (XML), stream data, histogram, query processing, query optimization and data warehousing.
