Office Hour


Hello, I am an assistant professor at the college of computing and informatics at SungKyunKwan University (SKKU). I got my Ph.D. in 2020 from KAIST and joined SKKU in the same year.
My research interests are in machine learning and natural language processing. In particular, I work in probabilistic Bayesian topic models and artificial neural networks to discover latent patterns such as user preferences and intentions in unannotated data such as conversational corpora.

2021 Spring Office Hour: Fri 9 AM ~ Noon, SKKU natural sciences campus 27306
