Jeehoon Kang (강지훈)

I’m actively recruiting motivated students of all levels interested in designing and verifying concurrent and parallel systems. If you’re interested, please read this instruction and contact Jeehoon ASAP.

Jeehoon Kang

I’m a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor at KAIST School of Computing and the Principal Investigator of Concurrency and Parallelism Laboratory. I’m also an Adjunct Faculty at KAIST Graduate School of AI Semiconductor. I received my Ph.D. from Seoul National University under the supervision of Prof. Chung-Kil Hur.

I’m designing and verifying concurrent and parallel systems, from microarchitectures to programming languages and algorithms, that greatly improve performance and reduce power consumption, thereby serving as the basis for the upcoming era of massive data processing.
