Global Challenge: AI for cybersecurity

I wish to contribute to the promising growth of cybersecurity. The continuous research and progress will one day ensure a safe and effective cyberspace for everyone.”


I was born in South Korea and moved to the United States when I was ten. The language barrier prompted my passion for math and science, eventually leading me to pursue engineering. I currently majoring in computer science and minoring in business management at NYU Tandon School of Engineering.

I took advantage of various opportunities provided to expand my academic perspective. I am the project manager of virtually-integrated project called NYU Robotics Design Team. We design and construct a Martian mining robot to compete in the annual NASA Lunabotic competition. I also interned as a New Technologist in Cyborg Mobile affiliated with Microsoft. I gain important product development skills and worked with frontend/backend integration for a web application. Most recently, I interned at Amazon as a software engineer to improve Amazon's artificial intelligence, Alexa. I worked under Alexa Video to improve customer experience using voice recognition technology in FireTV devices. 

Growing up in New York City has taught me the significance of diversity and inclusion. My favorite aspect of engineering is the open discussion to create and improve future innovation by collaborating with individuals with unique backgrounds. I look forward to growing both personally and academically as part of the GLASS Honors Program.
