Master’s Student @ KAIST
Writing with AI, HCI, NLP

I am a second-year master's student at KAIST, advised by Prof. Sung-Ju Lee. I also work closely with Mina Lee at Microsoft Research / University of Chicago. I received my B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering at KAIST.

My research interests lie in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Natural Language Processing (NLP). I am passionate about leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to make creation processes more accessible and enjoyable for users at all skill levels. My current research focuses on developing AI-assisted interactive systems that enhance the writing experience for language learners.
