I am an assistant professor at the School of AI Convergence, Soongsil University (SSU). Before joining SSU, I was a postdoc at UCLA and QCRI. I received my Ph.D. in Web Science, KAIST in 2018.
I am interested in tackling social problems through data science approaches and social data. Recent interest focuses on detecting misinformation and social bias in online media platforms through multi-modal analyses and understanding its effects on audience behaviors. My technical expertise lies in Data Science and Machine (Deep) Learning, and in particular, I have research experiences in developing deep NLP approaches and utilizing causal inference approaches. My research has been published in premier computer science/interdisciplinary conferences (ACL, WWW, ICWSM, CIKM, CSCW, AAAI) and social science/interdisciplinary journals (J. of Advertising).
