Jungyeul Park, Lecturer, MDS Computational Linguistics
"UBC’s MDS Computational Linguistics is the study of data science and linguistics that empower students to be future ready with tools in computational linguistics. I’m excited to work with our students and explore the new era of natural language processing."
Jungyeul Park received his Ph.D. in Linguistics from the Université Paris Diderot (Paris VII) in 2006. His interest in natural language processing motivated him to pursue Linguistics after initially studying Computer Science. His current research interests include machine learning approaches for morphology and syntax of natural language. He is currently a lecturer in the Department of Linguistics at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada) and an affiliate assistant professor in the Department of Linguistics at University of Washington (Seattle, USA). Before that he was a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Linguistics at the State University of New York at Buffalo during 2018-2019, a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Arizona during 2016-2017, a research scientist at CEA (Commissariat à l'énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives) during 2015-2016, and a lecturer (attaché temporaire d'enseignement et de recherche) in the Department of Computer Sciences at IUT de Lannion (Université de Rennes 1) during the academic year 2013-2014.
