I am an assistant professor in the School of Computer Science and Engineering at KOREATECH (Korea University of Technology and Education). My research interests span a broad range of topics in the area of mobile and ubiquitous computing and IoT computing. I am interested in designing creative systems and conducting experimental system research for challenging real-world problems. I am particularly interested in devising new mobile applications/services, tackling related technical problems, and designing systems for the applications, and building working prototype. Before joining KOREATECH, I was a research professor in the Department of Computer Science at KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology).

I am looking for highly motivated M.S. and Ph.D. students to work with me in the area of mobile/ubiquitous computing, Internet of Things, deep/machine learning, and human-computer interaction. If you are interested in building innovative mobile/wearable/IoT systems and joining my research group, please send me your CV via  swkang (at) koreatech (dot) ac (dot) kr.
