David Seunghyun Yoon is a research scientist at Adobe Research. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Seoul National University. His research interests are in the areas of machine learning and natural language processing (NLP). He is particularly interested in question-answering systems, dialog systems, learning language representation, and multimodal representation (i.e., text, audio, and visual).

Additional information can be found on the personal website

He is looking for interns and research collaborators with strong NLP backgrounds working on QA/Dialog system with external knowledge, and unsupervised language representation. Feel free to contact him at syoon@adobe.com anytime.
