My life goal is to lower the barriers of knowledge through data. I am currently working for Naver Papago – and lowering the barriers of linguistic knowledge by building machine translation models. Current areas of interest include context-aware machine translation, and translation evaluation.

You can often find me on the Web as Eunjeong, echojuliett, echojuli&t, e9t.
