Daehyeok Kim

Assistant Professor
Dr. Daehyeok Kim is an Assistant Professor at UT Computer Science. He obtained his Ph.D. in computer science from CMU and B.S. in computer science from POSTECH. His research interests lie in the intersection of systems and networking with a focus on building software systems that improve the performance, efficiency, and resiliency of data- and network-intensive applications running on emerging programmable infrastructure (e.g., programmable switches, NICs, and xPUs) at the edge and cloud.
