Welcome to my world! The world you have just entered is a pretty bland one. I work, play, and travel just like any person. I do have some uncommon interests and an occasionally warped perspective. This world has yet to reflect many of my eccentric qualities, however.

My full name is Yoo Chul Chung, and I am not a very talkative person. This is true for both my online and offline lives, which explains why I have not been a big fan of instant messaging or parties. I can’t help it, so if someone dies of boredom while talking to me, please don’t arrest me.

I maintain the blog Stochastic Scribbles, where I write about anything random that catches my fancy.

Couple rings

My fiancee and I just got our couple rings, which we had ordered in the week before I flew off to West Point. They'll probably be our de facto wedding rings, since the official rings may be a bit too fancy to wear comfortably all the time. This is the reason we got them, after all. It's also a good excuse for me to have no compunction about wearing mine all the time already when the wedding is still months away. (Good thing I'm writing this and not making a video statement, otherwise my goofy grin would embarrass me.)

To West Point

I'm heading out on a flight to West Point tomorrow for the Workshop on Network Science, where I'll be making a presentation and participating in a panel. Under normal circumstances, this would be funded as part of the work of a research project. However, the funding has to be approved by the higher-ups in my institute, and unfortunately, certain recent events have made it impossible for the higher-ups to approve anything for a while.

Back from Innsbruck

I'm back from Innsbruck, Austria, where I had a great time. The experience was certainly much better than I expected, considering I spent almost no time in planning any sightseeing because I was more preoccupied with preparing for the conference. I do feel the need to say this: even if you don't know how to ski, you definitely want to pay a visit to one of the ski resorts and take a lift up to a peak, where you will have your breath taken away by the sights.
