Woojeong Jin

Ph.D. Student, Computer Science Department

Hello! I am a first-year Ph.D. student in CS at the University of Southern California. My research interest lies in machine learning, graph mining, and natural language processing. I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Xiang Ren and supported by KEF Scholarship. I received B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Seoul National University. My undergraduate research was advised by Prof. U Kang.
