Ph.D., Research Scientist at
I am a Research Scientist at
Facebook Meta. Prior to joining Facebook, I earned my PhD in Computer Science, with a focus in Information Retrieval, from UMass Amherst working with James Allan in the Center for Intelligent Information Retrieval (CIIR).
During my PhD, I worked on detecting, modeling, and explaining controversy on the Web. Here is a copy of my CV and Google Scholar.
I occasionally write things in my Korean blog So Dabang. I'm also an asipiring Youtuber, though it's not always easy to find time to create new videos when I get busy with work.
How to pronounce my name:
You can think of it as pronouncing [Mee-young-ha] fast. Check out my my tutorial video .
