I am a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at UIUC, advised by Prof. Heng Ji. I received my Master’s Degree in Computer Science from the Purdue University in 2020. I received my bachelor degree in Computer Science from KAIST in 2017 (Department Rank: 1/37 - Magna Cum Laude).
My research focuses on applying deep learning to natural language processing. I have publications at reputable conferences and journals, including COLING, EMNLP, ICASSP, IEEE CG&A, and NAACL (in alphabetic order). In addition, I have 4 pending patents.
In the past, I did 2 internships at Google and 3 internships at Adobe Research. During the internships, I worked on a range of exciting projects including intelligent shopping assistant, document question answering, and deep learning model compression.
