Hello, I am an assistant professor at the college of computing 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.

I am looking for motivated students. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in.
