He had been engaged in research as a visiting scholar in the Department of Preventive Medicine at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. He obtained the MS and PhD degrees in Industrial Engineering from Texas A&M University in USA and the BS degree in Industrial Engineering from Korea University in South Korea. His primary interest is discovering new insight by extracting and fitting together implicit and potentially useful pieces of health information from big data. He is especially interested in issues at the convergence of engineering and humanities by mining and modeling 'mobile device sensed data’ about human behavior and context, with the goal of identifying and predicting behavior pattern and personal relationship for providing practical insight in healthcare. His research has been supported by numerous industries and government agencies. He received the KIIE Academic-Industrial Cooperation Project Contest award in 2009, the KISE Best Research Award in 2005, the INFORMS Annual Conference Best Student Paper Competition finalist recognition in 2004, and the Korean Honor Scholarship in 1999.
