About

I am a first year Ph.D. Student at Georgia Tech co-advised by Prof. Alan Ritter and Prof. Wei Xu. I obtained my master's degree from KAIST, where I worked with Prof. Sung-Hyon Myaeng.

My primary research interests lie in the area of natural language processing and machine learning. The long-term goal of my research is to make NLP systems practical so that they can be readily used in real-world scenarios. In particular, my research aims to i) make NLP systems cheaper (i.e., efficient) in terms of data and computational resources, and ii) design robust and reliable models to produce desirable outcomes in the wild.
