안녕하세요

Hi, I'm interested in bridging AI and Psychology!

I'm a fourth year PhD student at Seoul National University CSE, advised by Professor Gunhee Kim in the Vision & Learning Lab. Currently, I am having a fantastic experience at the Allen Institute for AI (AI2) doing research on dialogues in the Mosaic team!

For my research, I take an interdisciplinary approach: Natural Language Processing (NLP) inspired by human cognition. My primary research focus is open-domain dialogue, where all the social cognition comes into play!
Here is my CV.

About Me

I also go by the name of 순록킴 (pronounced kind of like soon log kim). Soon-log means reindeer in Korean. I always love to go taste delicious food. Please let me know if you know some great places to visit! I also enjoy watching Formula One. My favorite driver is Carlos Sainz.

I am also interested in solving social problems. I was involved in 지음 (pronounced ji eum), a social venture focusing on helping vulnerable college students with meals.

In case you are looking for my original blog, where I used to write posts, it's here.
