Assistant Professor
    Dept. of Linguistics, Korea University

My primary area of research interest includes computational syntax and corpus-based methods for analyzing the language resources.

- Computational Syntax: HPSG, grammar engineering, experimental syntax, deep learning-based syntactic studies
- Language Resources: medical NLP, speech pathological data, North Korean data

I am a Standing Committee member of the international conference on HPSG (Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar). I am the leader of the computational semantics lab. (aka. COSMOS or SongLab) at the Research Institute of Language & Information, Korea University. I worked as an assistant professor at Dept. of English Language and Literature, Incheon National University (from August 2015 to February 2019) and a research fellow at the Computational Linguistics Lab of NTU (from August. 2014 to August 2015).

I graduated from the University of Washington (Dept. of Linguistics) (Dec. 2013) (with Top Scholar Award and Graduate School Dissertation Fellowship) under the tutelage of Prof. Emily M. Bender. My PhD dissertation was entitled "A Grammar Library for Information Structure".

I published a book about modeling information structure in human languages: Modeling information structure in a cross-linguistic perspective (Berlin: Language Science Press). This study builds up an HPSG/MRS-based computational model for approaching information structure from a cross-linguistic perspective. The model improves the performance of multilingual machine translation in terms of speed as well as accuracy.
