Hello, world!

I’m Kirak Kim.

I’m a MS student at Music and Audio Computing Lab, KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology).

My research interests lie in the integration of the metaverse and artificial intelligence.

I’m currently working on developing an audio-to-motion model and applying it to virtual environments.

I love pop music including K-pop. And I enjoy cycling and whiskey ;-)
