About Me

I'm a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Seoul National University. As a member of Vision & Learning Lab, I study machine learning under the supervision of Prof. Gunhee Kim.

In the pursuit of artificial general intelligence, I believe that one of the next major challenges is continual learning. Especially, my recent focus has been on meta-continual learning, also known as learning to continually learn. In addition, I hold a profound interest in language models and overcoming their limitations through innovative solutions.
