Dongyeop Kang

I am a postdoc at University of California, Berkeley working with Marti A. Hearst, and a part of Berkeley AI Research (BAIR). I obtained my Ph.D. in the Language Technologies Institute of the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, under Eduard Hovy. I interned at Facebook AI, Allen Institute for AI (AI2), and Microsoft Research. My Ph.D. study has been supported by AI2 Fellowship, CMU Presidential Fellowship, and ILJU Graduate Fellowship. In the middle of my study, I completed my alternative military service in South Korea at Naver Labs and KAIST Institute. Before joining CMU, I obtained my BS and MS in Computer Science Engineering at KAIST, Korea.

I am on academic job market this year.

I'm interested in building human-centric language generation systems. My research is focused on (1) developing linguistically informed computational models in a wide range of generation tasks, and (2) building interactive NLG systems for human readers and writers. My research lies at the intersection of three fields: computational linguistics as a theoretical basis, modern machine learning as a powerful technical tool, and human-computer interaction as a robust interactive testbed.
