I am a PhD student in Information Technology at MIT, broadly interested in developing generative models and knowledge representation techniques for intelligent decision support system. Moreover, I am working towards de-biasing such models to prevent overgeneralization, ensuring they accurately reflect the heterogeneity of our experiences.
I interned at Amazon Alexa AI for the summer of 2023.
Before MIT, I was a research fellow at Carnegie Mellon University specializing in NLP and computational cognitive science. I received my B.S. in physics and B.A. in knowledge ecology (student-designed major) from Seoul National University.
My studies have been generously supported by scholarships with the most competitive funding in South Korea: SBS Foundation Scholarship (graduate) and the Presidential Science Scholarship in physics (undergraduate).
My publications and ongoing projects so far are the results of collaborating with physicists, computer scientists, historians, biologists, cognitive scientists, and political scientists, which implies how open I am to interdisciplinary discussions. If there’s any interesting research ideas you would like to discuss, please don’t hesitate to write me an email!
