I’m a PhD candidate advised by Yulia Tsvetkov at Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. I’m currently at University of Washington as a visiting PhD student. Broadly, my research interests are in the area of natural language processing and computational social science. I am a recipient of KFAS Fellowship and was a research intern at Meta AI and Adobe Research. Before joining CMU, I received my bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Yonsei University, South Korea. For more information, please check my CV.
My research specifically centers on the importance of sociocultural knowledge within the context of NLP, investigating the ways in which language use differs based on people’s cultural and social background. I aim to enhance the sociocultural awareness of language technologies to improve their effectiveness, fairness, and adaptability to diverse populations. Additionally, I’m interested in making the latest language technologies more accessible and practical for other disciplines, such as social science, political science, and communication studies.
