I am an assistant professor in Computer Science and Engineering at POSTECH, and a member of POSTECH Computer Vision Lab. Before that, I spent one and half years on the faculty of the Department of Information and Communication Engineering at DGIST. I did a post-doc with Ivan Laptev and Jean Ponce in the WILLOW team at the Department of Computer Science of the École Normale Supérieure and Inria Paris. I completed my BS and PhD in 2007 and 2014, respectively, both at POSTECH, where I was advised by Prof. Joon Hee Han and Prof. Bohyung Han.

I am primarily interested in techniques for learning visual recognition models with less or no human supervision, such as weakly supervised learning, semi-supervised learning, webly supervised learning, transfer learning, and domain adaptation. My current research interests also include metric learning and its applications, visual recognition in extreme conditions, and medical image analysis.
