Areas of Specialization: N/A

Dongkyun is a principal researcher who has been working for advanced national & global research networking for over 17 years at KISTI, South Korea. He also joined UT/ORNL, USA in 2006-2007 as a research associate III and a visiting scholar for distributed virtual NOC design and development. He is now leading KREONET-S project to softwarize Korea Research Environment Open Network (KREONET) based on virtual dedicate network/user-oriented visibility applications development on top of ONOS distributed control platform and new SD-WAN infrastructure deployment & operations.

Dongkyun received his Ph.D. in application layer multicasting from Chungnam National University, South Korea in 2005. He was a co-PI of NSF IRNC/GLORIAD project (2010-2016) as well as project leaders of GLORIAD-KR/KRLight (2009) and K-GENI/SDN/Future Research Networking (2010, 2008). He started KREONET-S project in 2015, making diverse efforts to realize production SDN services on KREONET, which, in turn, contribute to ONOS/CORD ecosystem.
