About Me

CV, publications, Google scholar profile, blog.

Hi, I'm Sung-Eui Yoon(윤 성의) and professor at KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Sci. and Tech.)
Currently, I am leading Scalable Graphics, Vision, & Robotics (SGVR Lab.) at KAIST.
My research interests span scalable rendering, vision, and robotics problems including Monte Carlo ray tracing, image search, and motion planning for robots.

I received my Ph.D. degree from Dept. of Computer Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill under the advisory of Dr. Dinesh Manocha and did post. doc at Lawrence Livermore National Lab. I also received my B.S. and M.S. degree from Dept. of Computer Science, Seoul National University. Here is my academic lineage.

I am married, and have one daughter and one son (pictures).

Job opening

I am actively looking for self-motivated graduate students and post docs. If you are interested in my research areas, please feel free to contact me.
Check out the current postdoc opening.
