I am a first-year Ph.D. student at ALIN-LAB, advised by Prof. Jinwoo Shin at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST).

My research interests focus on trustworthy machine learning for real-world deployment. I mainly focus on the interpretability & transparency of deep neural networks. However, I also have a broad interest in the robust machine learning (e.g., distributional shifts, adversarial examples and label shifts).
