Hello:) My name is Jooyoung Lee, a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the College of Information Sciences and Technology at the Pennsylvania State University. I’m part of the PIKE lab, consisting of my advisor Dr.Dongwon Lee and multiple Ph.D. students who research the problems in data science, social computing, and cybersecurity. My research interests broadly lie in Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, and Privacy. In recent years, I’ve been working on projects related to 1) large language models’ memorization from training data and 2) machine-generated text detection.

If you would like to learn more about me, here is my cv!
