Namyup Kim

Ph.D. student in the Computer Vision Lab at POSTECH.


I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science Engineering department at POSTECH, working as a member of the Computer Vision Lab, advised by Prof. Suha Kwak.

My research lies in computer vision and deep learning including, but not limited to, multimodal learning, domain generalization, weakly supervised learning and its applications. I am particularly interested in referring image segmentation which is an advanced semantic segmentation task where target is not a predefined class but is described in natural language. If you are interested in my research projects, please feel free to contact me.


Jun 27, 2022 ūüďú A paper on weakly supervised learning is accepted to IJCV.
Jun 20, 2022 ūüďú Two paper are accepted to CVPR 2022.
