About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living every moment of my life to the fullest!

ABOUT ME

Adventure is just part of my life. I love traveling and interacting with local people (language often doesn't matter). Meeting diverse people has been always an amazing experience to me.

As soon as getting my bachelor degree in Korea, I went to Spain for an internship in Madrid. As I fell in love with Spain, I decided to extend the internship and started a master degree. For more adventures, I started my PhD in USA. I went to Africa, Netherlands for summer internships, and it was great! After the graduation, I work as a data scientist in CA.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is nothing but an adventure, isn't it?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was left by one moroccan host as I refused to buy a product that he offered. In a travel agency, I met a receptionist girl who lived in one city near desert. After a few hours of talk she offered me to stay at her house. Her town didn't even have electricity and one of a room in her house didn't even have a ceiling. That room turns out to be our bedroom! I just put blanket on soil and I slept thinking that moonlight was very bright in desert.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share my experiences living, working, studying, traveling in different countries around the world. If you want, I'm always happy to share our current research topics such as wavelet transformation, data analysis ...@#$@! haha
