Taesoo Kim
Associate Professor and Director, GTS3



Research Areas:
Systems Security, Operating Systems, Programming Languages, and Distributed Systems.


Kim recently finished his doctorate at MIT, where he worked with professors Nickolai Zeldovich and Frans Kaashoek specializing in systems security. His thesis work focused on detecting and recovering from attacks on computer systems. Kim has developed tools that would detect intrusion and discover which parts of the operating system could have been affected, allowing a systems administrator to recover from an attack without excessive manual effort.   

Kim received his bachelor’s in both computer science and electrical engineering from KAIST in 2009, and his SM and PhD from MIT in 2011 and 2014.
