About me

I am a 1st year Ph.D. student in Artificial Intelligence (AI) program at Seoul National University, advised by Prof. Byoung-Tak Zhang. My research interests mainly span in the area of machine learning, computer vision, and natural language processing. More specifically, I have focused on machine learning algorithms for AI agent that can (1) see everyday scenes, (2) communicate with human via natural language, and (3) make decisions using vision & language information.

Prior to joining Ph.D. program, I did my master study in Cognitive Science at Seoul National University. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Ajou University.
