Math/CS Welcomes New Faculty Member Jinho Choi

Jinho Choi is an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Emory University. He obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Cognitive Science from the University of Colorado Boulder in 2012. Jinho Choi has been active in research on natural language processing; especially, on the optimization of low-level NLP (e.g., part-of-speech tagging, dependency parsing, semantic role labeling) for robustness on various data and scalability on large data. He has developed an open source project called ClearNLP, providing NLP components with state-of-the-art accuracy and speed, which has been widely used for both academic and industrial research. His current research focuses on the development of NLP components for different domains (e.g., social media, medical data) and the applications of these NLP components for end-user systems such as question-answering, information extraction, dialog management, etc. He is also interested in interdisciplinary research where NLP can enhance researches in other areas.
