Young Kun Ko

I am an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) at Penn State University. Currently I am accepting students!

Before this, I was a Faculty Fellow (post-doc) at New York University hosted by Professor Oded Regev and Professor Subhash Khot. I received my PhD at Princeton University advised by Professor Mark Braverman.

Research Interest

I am interested in applications of information theoretic techniques in complexity theory. Currently I am interested in giving data structure lower bounds using techniques from communication complexity.
