I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Electrical Computer and Engineering at University of California, San Diego. I got my Master Degree in Computer Science and Engineering at University of California, San Diego. I have received my B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering in 2008 from Kyungpook National University, Daegu, Republic of Korea.
Currently, I work in the Video Processing Lab. My advisor is Truong Q. Nguyen. My research focus is video processing and computer vision.
In this project, we propose a new method to enhance noisy or low-resolution depth maps using high-resolution color images. Our method is based on sample selection and refinement in conjunction with multi-lateral filtering.
In this project, we propose a robust method for camera tracking and surface mapping using a handheld RGB-D camera which is effective in challenging situations such as fast camera motion or geometrically featureless scenes.
In this project, we propose a novel approach for realistic surface geometry reconstruction using RGB-D images. Our approach based on KinectFusion utilizes high quality RGB images for extracting additional information for realistic visual reconstruction and recovers raw surface geometry.
I am from South Korea and like taking pictures and driving my car. I also like playing video games and collecting dinosaurs figures. I love traveling to exotic places, and love to travel more places as much as possible.
