I am currently a Ph.D. student co-advised by Prof. In So Kweon and Prof. Junmo Kim at KAIST. My research interest aims to build robust recognition system for image and video understanding under limited and/or biased data. Towards this goal, I have been working on data-efficient learning techniques in image and video domain. In addition, I have interest in vision and language models, specifically for enhancing visual understanding tasks.
