I am a Senior Researcher at the AI Advanced Research Lab at Samsung SDS in Seoul, South Korea. I am based at the Samsung R&D Campus in the center of Seoul.

My work at Samsung SDS focuses on developing cutting edge AI solutions based on Deep Learning and Reinforcement Learning in order to improve services and products across Samsung’s affiliates and their customers.

Before joining Samsung SDS, I was an Assistant Professor at the Yau Mathematical Sciences Center (YMSC) at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China until February 2019.

I was also a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Theoretical Physics Group at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University. My hosts at Uppsala were Professor Guido Festuccia and Professor Maxim Zabzine. I have also been a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Korea Institute for Advanced Study in Seoul, South Korea and received my Ph.D. in theoretical physics at Imperial College London under the supervision of Professor Amihay Hanany.

As an Assistant Professor, Postdoctoral Researcher and Doctoral Student, my work was at the interface of mathematical/theoretical physics and mathematics.  In particular, I have been working on the geometrical and dynamical properties of various supersymmetric gauge theories in relation to quantum field theory and string theory.
