Bryan S. Kim

Assistant Professor

Electrical Engineering & Computer Science


  • Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering, Seoul National University
  • M.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Seoul National University
  • B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of California, Berkeley

Research interests:

  • Data storage systems, devices, and technologies
  • Data-intensive applications and systems
  • File systems and database management systems

Current Research:

My research focuses on the performance and reliability guarantees for data storage. Making these guarantees is becoming more and more difficult as the underlying hardware’s characteristics deteriorate and the application’s demand for data increases. As such, my investigation spans across data-intensive applications, databases and file systems, and I/O storage devices.
