Although I'm from Korea, I've spent the half of my life abroad — four years in Indonesia and five in the US. Most recently, I've graduated from Deerfield Academy and now I'm majoring in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC).
I began coding at the age of 12, starting with website languages. After four years of coding only websites, I got into Python and Machine Learning (2017). I showcased my first ML project at a local science fair in Rochester, winning many top awards (Integrating Recurrent Neural Network into Technical Analyses of Stock Market).
I started coding at 11 years (2013) old when I got my first laptop. Starting around 2015, I have studied and worked furiously on mastering website design and developing.
Around that time, I also got into cryptocurrency. I'm more interested in the technical aspects of cryptocurrency, especially the Decentralized Finance and Distributed Ledger Technology. I've also experimented with crypto trading, and I've learned the art of hedging positions with options & liquidty mining (market making).
I still program websites, but I'm gradually transitioning into backend SW works and ML. I hope to pursue a Ph.D. in either CS or Statistics, and later work in either the Finance sector (Quant/DeFi) or cutting-edge ML labs.
