I am PhD student in University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass) working with James Allan. I am working in Center for Intelligent Information Retrieval (CIIR). My research interests include various aspects of information retrieval (IR) and natural language processing (NLP).

I recieved bachelor’s degree from Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH). I’ve worked with Hwanjo Yu when I was in POSTECH.
