He received his B.S. and M.S. degree in Electronics Engineering from the Korea University, Seoul, Korea in 1993 and 1995, respectively.
His research topic is real-time and low-power implementation of audio DSP signal processing algorithms such as acoustic echo cancellation (AEC), audio noise suppression (ANS), and audio compression. His is interested in adaptive filters, multi-channel AEC, wavelet theory, statistical signal processing, floating-gate circuits, and analog signal processing.
Before he came to Georgia Tech in 2000, he was with Hyundai Electronics (now Hynx Semiconductor), Ichon, Korea for five and a half years. His responsibility was to develop car navigation software such as GPS interface, route guidance, route calculation, 3-D map display (Bird eye view), and etc. on both window-based platforms and an embedded system using VxWorks RTOS.
