Hi! I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Seoul National University with Prof. Jangwoo Kim and High Performance Computer System Lab. Before joining my lab, I received my B.S. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Seoul National University. If you are interested in talking to me, please contact me via the e-mail, dongmoon.min@snu.ac.kr.


Research Interests

Cryogenic Computing

Novel solution for the next-generation datacenters

Cryogenic computing, which runs computers at extremely low-temperature (e.g., 77K), can be one of the highly promising solution to overcome the computer's performance challenges (i.e., power wall and the memory wall problems). It also can contribute to quantum computing as a controlling module running at low temperatures (e.g., 4K).

Large-Scale Computer Systems (Datacenters)

The workhorse powering an information revolution

As every user applications are working on the cloud datacenter, improving the datacenter's performance and power efficiency is of utmost concern for cloud providers. I'm now interested in reducing the datacenter's total cost of an ownership (TCO) by improving the performance and the power efficiency of servers and cooling facilities.

Performance Modeling

Techniques for estimating the technology's potential and the design directions

Performance models are the most essential tools to evaluate design decisions for improving computer systems. I'm currently interested and engaged in performance modeling for designing, deploying, and evaluating the cryogenic computing before developing prototypes.

Quantum Computing

I'm also interested in research of quantum computing, expecially for developing its performance/timing simulator and controlling modules (equipped with the CMOS-based cryogenic computer devices).
