I am a Professor in the Department of Statistics and an Affilated Member of A.I Research Institute at Seoul National University. I am currently serving on the editorial boards of Journal of the Korean Statistical Society, JASA/TAS Review and Chemometrics and Intelligent Laboratory Systems. I received my BS in Computer Science and Statistics and MS in Statistics both from Seoul National University in 1991 and 1993, respectively. After a brief stint at Texas A&M University, I went to Carnegie Mellon University to become a Bayesian. Ironically, I didn't do any Bayesian stuff for my Ph.D. thesis but landed back to the Bayesian world, ISDS, at Duke. After spending eight years at Duke and the University of Georgia, I joined the Department of Statistics at Seoul National University in 2012. To me, statistics is a tool for solving scientific problems, and I feel lucky to choose statistics as my professional area, so I still can pursue all my childhood dreams, astronomer, geneticist, and baseball analyst. On the theoretical side, I am interested in the development of a framework for infinite-dimensional data common in many scientific areas. On the application side, my collaborations encompass such topics as astronomy, biology, digital humanity, epidemiology, neuroscience, and politics.
