Minje Kim received his PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2016). Before joining UIUC, he worked as a researcher in ETRI, a national lab in Korea, from 2006 to 2011. He did his Bachelor’s and Master’s studies in the Division of Information and Computer Engineering at Ajou University and in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at POSTECH in 2004 and 2006, respectively. His research focuses on designing machine learning models applied to signal processing (e.g. audio and the other time series data), stressing out their computational efficiency in the resource-constrained environments or in the implementations involving large unorganized datasets. He received Richard T. Cheng Endowed Fellowship from UIUC in 2011. Google and Starkey grants also honored his ICASSP papers as the outstanding student papers in 2013 and 2014, respectively.
