About

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Machine Learning & Natural Language Processing at UKP Lab in TU Darmstadt, supervised by Prof. Iryna Gurevych. My main research interests are reasoning for Question Answering and Graph Neural Networks. Previously, I worked at the Coleridge Initiative, where I co-organized the Kaggle Competition Show US the Data. I got my master's degree from the School of Computing at KAIST, where I was a research assistant at IR&NLP Lab and was advised by Professor Sung-Hyon Myaeng.

Teaching

I love teaching and I hope to become a professor one day, so I am always looking for undergraduate/master students interested in doing their thesis on NLP. If you are interested in any of my research topics, please contact me as soon as possible, I try to supervise one student every semester. I also supervise Hiwis (research assistants), but this depends on projects availability.
