Associate Professor

My primary area of research interest includes computational syntax, corpus-based methods for analyzing the language data, and a hybrid approach between them.

- Language Resources: deep learning-based linguistic studies, medical and legal NLP
- Syntax: HPSG, experimental syntax, grammar engineering

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. 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. I am leading the computational semantics lab. (aka. COSMOS or SongLab) at the Research Institute of Language & Information, Korea University.
