I graduated in the Department of Computer Engineering from Pusan National University, South Korea with a Bachelor of Engineering, Master of Engineering, and Ph.D. of Engineering in Computer. My Ph.D. thesis was entitled 'Preserving Location Anonymity in Indoor Spaces.' The Ph.D. was carried out under the supervision of Prof. Ki-Joune Li.
My major research areas include spatial (spatiotemporal) databases, telematics, computational geometry, agent-based modeling, urban simulation, spatial analysis, location privacy, GIS, data modeling, and data mining. Results of my research have been published as papers and reports.
Currently, I am a program committee member of GeoRich 2020 and coordinating the AIS (AI and Simulation) track of Spring Simulation Conference 2020 as a track chair. I serve as a co-guest editor of the Special Issue: "Geo-Enriched Data Modeling & Mining", ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information. I served a program co-chair of GeoSim'18-'19 and a program committee member of ACM SIGSPATIAL 2019 and Winter Simulation Conference 2019 (Track: Big Data in Simulation).
I have worked as an expert on international standards related to GIS published by Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and ISO/TC211. I also joined an OGC Working Group for IndoorGML, which is an international standard for indoor navigation. You can check my video lectures on ISO 19107 – Spatial Schema and GML in Korean.
I have strong programming skills. I am not only an expert of C, C++, and Objective-C but also very proficient in C#, Java and Python programming languages. I have taught multiple courses regarding programming including Introduction to GIS Programming and Algorithms, Introduction to Open Source Software Development, Java Programming, and Object-Oriented Programming. I have wide-ranging programming experiences related to GIS including database, spatial DBMS (PostGIS, Oracle SDO), Web-based, 2D, 3D graphics, and mobile programming. I also have experiences to use and integrate geo-information tools/libraries such as QGIS, ArcGIS, GoogleEarth, GeoSHAPE, GeoTools, CGAL, and LEDA.
