Engineering & Research Manager (Leader)
KAIST School of AI
(Starting in Jan 2021)
I am an Engineering & Research Manager at Naver
and an incoming Assistant Professor at KAIST School of AI.
I currently split my time between leading a team for developing AI products and conducting research
in NLP and machine learning.
I am interested in how the world knowledge can be encoded (e.g. external memory and language model),
accessed (e.g. question answering and dialog), and produced (e.g. reasoning).
I obtained PhD in Computer Science at the University of Washington where I was fortunate to be advised by Hannaneh Hajishirzi and Ali Farhadi and supported by Facebook Fellowship and AI2 Key Scientific Challenges Award. Before that, I obtained BS in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley.
