I am the CEO/co-founder of Network Defines, Inc, a network-technology startup based in Seoul, Korea. Currently, our team is developing Floppy Network, a distributed and decentralized infrastructure with the peer-to-peer and the blockchain technologies. Our team has officially joined wave 2 of the TEAC Seoul acceleration program by Telecom Infra Project (TIP) in September 2018.

Before founding Network Defines, I was the CEO/co-founder of Mavlux, Inc., which developed various web services. I was a postdoctoral researcher at Seoul National University from September 2011 to May 2012. I received B.S. and Ph.D. degrees from School of Computer Science and Engineering, Seoul National University, in 2004 and 2011, respectively. I had been in Multimedia & Mobile Communications Laboratory from September 2004 to May 2012.

My faculty advisors were Prof. Yanghee Choi and Prof. Ted "Taekyoung" Kwon.
