Jimin Sun


I’m a Master’s student in Language Technologies at Carnegie Mellon University, where I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Jean Oh.

My research interests are in the area of natural language processing. I am especially fascinated by language pragmatics, how linguistic meaning is affected by context and communicative goals. I am interested in modeling contextual information to disambiguate meaning, so that we can improve both text-driven tasks (e.g., machine translation) and multimodal tasks (e.g., visual-language navigation).

Before joining CMU, I was a research intern at Kakao Enterprise, South Korea. I previously received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering from Seoul National University.


Aug 30, 2021 I started my Master’s program at CMU LTI!
