Man-Ki Yoon

Research Scientist at Yale Computer Science

My research interests are in

  • trustworthy computing for safety-critical autonomous systems (such as self-driving cars, unmanned aerial vehicles),
  • embedded computing (cyber-physical systems, real-time computing, internet-of-things), and
  • accountability/transparency of ML-enabled systems.

I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Seoul National University.

I am joining NCSU as an assistant professor of Computer Science in Fall 2022. I will be looking for MS/PhD students who are interested in working on security problems of CPS and real-time embedded computing.
