Youngmin Yi joined the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Seoul in March 2010 and is now a Professor. He is also with the Department of Artifitial Intelligence and the Department of Urban Big Data Convergence.

He received his B.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Seoul National University in 2000 and 2007 respectively. Prior to joining the University of Seoul, he had been a postdoctoral researcher in the Parallel Computing Lab. at the University of California, Berkeley from 2007 to 2009, and worked for the Multi-core Software group in Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology till February 2010.

On his sabbatical leave from 2016 to 2017, he had the privilege to work with Prof. Xipeng Shen in NCSU as a visiting scholar.

His research interests include on-device deep learning, heterogeneous parallel computing, a software design methodology for heterogeneous manycore platforms, and various deep learning and ML applications.
