Towards Machine Learning


I am a PhD student at Laboratoire d'Optique et Bioscience (LOB) in École Polytechnique in France. My greatest interest for the moment is solving computer vision problems using machine learning and deep learning. Beside that, I like writing scripts to automate my workflow as well as playing guitar. I am concerned about the climate crisis, so I became vegan because it's the least I can do.

PhD in Computer Science

Laboratoire d'Optique et Bioscience, Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau, France

I am a member of bio-microscopy team in LOB. Our team deals with large volume fluorescence microscopy images. I use self-supervision approach with deep neural networks to develop a generic filter that covers various fluorescence microscopy images. My advisors are Anatole Chessel and Emmanuel Beaurepaire.

MScEng in Innovation Technologique: Ingénierie et Entrepreneuriat (Innovation, Entreprise et Société)

École Polytechnique & Kyung Hee Univ.

I know it's a long and complex name ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Likewise my course of study was a bit longer than usual and quite jumpy. In total, I took me 9 months in KHU and 20 months in École Polytechnique. I started off my Master's degree studying quantum engineering for future display, but came to know something called computer vision using machine learning and deep learning and it changed everything. I was soon absorbed by ML and DL entirely.

Data Scientist Intern

PandaScore, Paris, France

I worked at a start-up called PandaScore as an intern of the Data Science team. Here I met real data scientists. Working in a start-up was absolutely a fascinating experience.

Data Scientist Intern

Laboratoire d'Optique et Bioscience, Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau, France

I came to France and first encountered machine learning and computer vision. Segmenting bio-medical fluorescence images was a cool thing. This opportunity was a turning point of my career towards computer science and machine learning.

Research Assistant & Teaching Assistant

Quantum Information Display, Kyung Hee Univ., Seoul, South Korea

I wanted to make a next generation display and decided to do Master's degree. In Quantum Information Display unit, I synthesized CVD (chemical vapor decomposition) graphene and put it on anodic aluminum oxide, which I grew in a custom built chemical chamber. The device showed some photo sensitivity.

Mar 2011 - Feb 2017

BSc in Information Display Engineering

Dept. Information Display, Kyung Hee Univ., Seoul, South Korea

I majored in what's called Information Display, an interdisciplinary engineering subject, covering electronics, optics, chemistry, and even a bit of quantum theory. You might be wondering what took me so long for Bachelor's degree. I did the military duty for 21 months. Yeah, it's still a thing in South Korea, if you didn't know...
