I am a doctoral researcher currently engaged using natural language processing and machine learning to combat fake news and conspiracy theory propagation via multimodal methods. I also work on using artificial intelligence to aid telemedicine. I have two bachelor's degrees in Linguistics and Japanese from Michigan State University in the United States. I completed my master's in Computational Linguistics at Seoul National University in South Korea. I worked in industry as a computational linguist for about six months and then worked as a researcher for four years at a quantitative biology lab in Seoul, applying machine learning and computer vision algorithms to image and cellular data.

I am interested in using multimodal representation learning to create artificial intelligence systems that consider multiple sources of information, be it visual, audio, historical, when making decisions.
