I am a PhD student at the University of Washington (Dept. of Linguistics) (with Top Scholar Award). At the UW, I'm studying computational linguistics under the tutelage of Prof. Emily M. Bender. I passed my general exam in October 2011, and now I'm officially a PhD Candidate.
The topic of my PhD dissertation is building up "A Grammar Library for Information Structure". I'm a co-editor of UWWPL (University of Washington Working Papers in Linguistics).
I had participated in various projects on language application since 2001, which made me interested in computational linguistics. After graduation, I had worked at an NLP company (Eoneo Inc. - Language Technology Total Solution) for three and a half years. I started my graduate studies in 2006 (Dept. of Linguistics, Korea Univ.), majoring in computational lingusitics.
I studied at City University of Hong Kong as a visiting researcher in 2007.
In 2008, I received a scholarship, from the Korean government (Global Internship Fellows), to serve an internship at NICT (National Institute of Information and Communications Technology) in Japan. I had worked at the Language Infrastructure Group of NICT from Feb. 2009 to Aug. 2009 (Project Title : Exploiting Multilingual Text for Grammar Development).
