Hi :) I am a Research Scientist on the PAIR (People and AI Research) team at Google Research. I explore novel computational interaction techniques powered by AI technologies by designing, building, and evaluating AI powered systems with users in the loop. I am also an adjunct professor at the KAIST Graduate School of AI.

These days I am interested in 1) making large-scale language models usable and useful, and 2) simulation-based models of users and interfaces.

I have a PhD in Computer Science from KAIST. During my PhD, I was advised by Juho Kim in the KIXLAB. Before joining Google, I was a research scientist and a technical leader at Naver AI, where I led research at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction and Machine Learning.
