Senior Software Engineer

Think Blue Data

Responsible for developing Web applications using Ruby on Rails. One of the applications is an online tool for planning and analyzing data and images generated by a portable water robot named ESP. It enables users to plan a mission before deployments, remote troubleshooting, sync data generated from ESPs to a dedicated server, and process log files and images. After analyzed large dataset, an online tool will generate the visualizations which allow users to interact, filter and export. Moreover, this application is extended to serve user the visualizations of big data generated by water sensors around the world.

The technologies behind these applications are Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, and Bootstrap. We mainly use open-source libraries of JavaScript such as jQuery, underscore.js, slickgrid, backbone, d3, nvd3. Other technologies we have been using are Rsync, Drupal and Apache Solr. Our team is using Agile software development.

Interests

Apart from being a full-time graduate student and a research assistant, I enjoy most of my time listening to music and watching movies and TV series. I am so addicted to Pop music especially international pop music and K-pop. My favorite K-pop group of all time is Girls' Generation (SNSD 소녀시대). I love watching Crime TV Series such as Criminal Minds, NCIS, and Bones.

I am not a fan of spending time for outdoor activities, but if I do, I usually take a walk for sightseeing. I cannot resist catching the nice weather in South Korea.
