Hi, I’m HyoJung. I am a second year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at University of Maryland, College Park (UMD). Currently, I am working with Marine Carpuat and Jordan Boyd-Graber, and participate in Computational Linguistics and Information Processing (CLIP) Lab.

My research interests lie in the general domain of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. More specifically, I am interested in Machine Translation, Multilingual Question Answering system, and evaluation method of NLP model.

Previously, I was a research/software engineer at Samsung Research (SR), the advanced R&D hub of Samsung Electronics’ SET Busines. I mainly worked on simultaneous and offline speech/text translation in Efficient Neural Machine Translation Team at SR. (Try SR translator!) I completed my M.S at KAIST.

For more details of me, here’s my Curriculum Vitae.

:bell: HyoJung Han ← HouJeung Han

To avoid any confusion, I want to clarify that my alphabetical name has been officially changed to “HyoJung Han” from “HouJeung Han” since July 2020. (same Korean name “한효정”) After the Amendment to the Enforcement Decree of the Passport Act enables the revision, I decided to change it despite the mess afterward. The main reason is that there is an obvious discrepancy between the original pronunciation in Korean(close to HyoJung) and in the previous alphabetical name(HouJeung) as well as the resulting problems from small to critical one because of this.

I know most of my listed publications are in “HouJeung” but it’s me, “HyoJung”! :wink:
