Associate Professor, School of Computing

I am an assistant professor in the computer science department at the University of Georgia. Before joining UGA, I was a postdoctoral research associate working in Prof. Daniel Kifer's machine learning lab at PennState University. I received my Ph.D. in computer science in 2014 from Purdue University, where I studied privacy-preserving data analysis techniques under the supervision of Prof. Chris Clifton. Before joining Purdue, I was a member of the database group at Yonsei university where I obtained my master's and bachelor's degrees in Computer Science. During my master's study, I did research on developing efficient stream mining algorithms for high-dimensional data streams under the supervision of Prof. Won Suk Lee.

Research Interests:

My research interests lie at the intersections of data mining, machine learning, data privacy, and security. My primary interest is on data privacy --- providing strong privacy guarantees while making accurate computations on sensitive datasets possible. I work on developing new methodologies for performing machine learning and data mining tasks on sensitive data. The research topics of my interests are listed below, but not limited to:

  • Data privacy
  • Machine learning
  • Convex optimization
  • Security analytics
Selected Publications:
Of note:

I am looking for hard-working and self-motivated graduate students. If you are interested in machine learning or data privacy research, please contact me with your CV.
