000. About Me

I'm Yeseong Kim, a computer science & engineering student, living in San Diego.

Present 00: Ph.D candidate student in SEELAB
(System Energy Efficiency Lab, University of California San Diego),
Advisor: Tajana S. Rosing

My latest Curriculum Vitae can be seen here. (Edited Jun 2017)

Research Interests: Smarter embedded/IoT systems based on context awareness, Operating systems, computer systems and computer architecture

Current Research Topic System-level phase analysis for various computing environments in IoT ecosystems. Context-aware computation and optimization for embedded systems: I have focused on the use of fine-grained phase context information which is systematically extracted from an applications's execution flow. By understanding how an IoT app is executed over different phases while interacting with diverse environmental interactions, I'm developing an automated phase detection framework for IoT systems, from data centers to mobile devices. The framework enables phase-based resource usage analysis and system optimizations.
