Joon Kim is an Associate Research Scholar in the Computer Science department at Princeton University, where he works with Professor Jennifer Rexford. He is also a Cyber Infrastructure Engineer at Princeton University. He received his Ph.D. and Master's degree in Computer Science from Georgia Tech, where he was advised by Professor Nick Feamster. He received his Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. He did several research internships at HP Labs in Palo Alto, USA. Before graduate school, he worked as a software engineer in South Korea.
My research focuses on making computer networks easier to monitor,
understand, troubleshoot, and configure. I enjoy designing fast
and accurate mechanisms that analyze real-world traffic and extract
useful information for network practitioners. I am passionate
about designing and implementing better tools and systems for
next-generation applications and networks.
I often use tools and mechanisms in software-defined networking
(SDN), P4, and programmable data planes.
I am enthusiastic about applying new ideas to real operational networks. My experience and position with the IT department at Princeton University make this possible in many cases. With my colleagues, I started and currently lead the P4 Campus initiative.
I am also heavily involved in the PRONTO project.
