I am a senior student majoring Electrical and Computer Engineering at Seoul National University, South Korea. I am interested in software systems that support deep learning, and also optimizing system components using deep learning. I have experience on GPU cluster resource management, server-client collaborative DNN inference, and meta-learning. I also try to follow up on state-of-the-art deep learning research during my free time.

Research Experience

Research Intern

Mar 2020 - Present

GPU cluster resource management

• Advised by Professor Byung-Gon Chun.
• Developing Crane, an elastic GPU cluster resource manager for deep learning workloads.
• Kubernetes backend for Crane, efficient AutoML scheduling for GPU clusters.

Senior Project

Dec 2019 - Jun 2020

Server-client collaborative DNN inference

• Advised by Professor Soo-Mook Moon.
• Developed a novel server-client collaborative video DNN inference scheme that drastically reduces network traffic via intermittent knowledge distillation.
• Implemented the scheme with PyTorch & OpenMPI and conducted evaluation using an NVIDIA Jetson Nano board as a client

Research Intern

Jun 2019 - Dec 2019

Meta-learning, Few-shot Classification

• Advised by Professor Kyoung Mu Lee.
• Conducted research on better meta-initialization points for Model-Agnostic Meta-Learning (MAML) using an LSTM-based neural memory.
• Conducted research on generating task-aware class embeddings to augment feature maps of MAML with a convex program (DPP).

Research Intern

Jun 2019 - Aug 2019

Deep Learning methods for Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM)

• Advised by Professor Jongho Lee.
• Designed, implemented, and trained a U-Net variant on in-vivo brain MRI field images and their COSMOS results.
• Submitted our solution to the QSM challenge held by the 5th International Workshop on MRI Phase Contrast and QSM.
