I am an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and Graduate School of Artificial Intelligence at POSTECH, South Korea, working as a faculty member of POSTECH Computer Vision Lab. My research lies in the areas of computer vision and machine learning, especially in the problems of visual semantic correspondence, graph matching, object discovery, action recognition, and minimally-supervised learning. I am interested in the relationship between correspondence and supervision in visual learning.

Before joining POSTECH in the fall of 2016, I was a researcher (starting research position) in the Inria WILLOW team at École Normale Supérieure (ENS), Paris, France, where I have worked with Jean Ponce and closely collaborated with Cordelia Schmid in the Inria LEAR team. I completed my Ph.D. in 2012, under the supervision of Kyoung Mu Lee at Seoul National University, Korea.

I am an editorial board member of the International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV) and has been serving an area chair in prestigious conferences including CVPR, ICCV, WACV, AAAI, IJCAI, ACCV, BMVC. In 2020, I have been inducted into the Young Korean Academy of Science and Technology (Y-KAST).
