I am an Assistant Professor (Research-Focused) at the Department of Computer and Information Security at Sejong University, Seoul, South Korea. Before that, I was a Research Scholar at the KINDI Center for Computing Research at Qatar University in collaboration with Purdue University hosted by Qutaibah Malluhi and Ryan Riley.
I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the Kyungpook National University, South Korea. I have successfully defended my doctoral thesis on 07-Dec-2016 and graduated on 17-Feb-2017. During my Ph.D., I was extremely fortunate to be supervised by Kee-Young Yoo and Eun-Jun Yoon. I also closely work with Ashok Kumar Das and Ji Sun Shin.
My research interests include Information Security and Cryptography. I am mainly involved in research projects related to Authentication Protocols.
