Jinyong Lee

has recently got a Ph.D. in the Department of Computer Science of the University of Southern California. He received his B.S. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2005 from Hanyang University in Seoul, Korea and the M.S. degree in Computer Science from the University of Southern California in 2007. His research interests include modeling human language production and comprehension, semantic representation, neurolinguistics and psycholinguistics. He is currently working on a model of production of scene description. This work involves building a computational model (Template Construction Grammar (TCG) and its extension) with a new type of semantic representation, SemRep, as well as conducting a set of eye-tracking experiments to collect supporting evidence for the model.

Research Topics
  1. Computational modelling of language
  2. Psycholinguistics (with eye-tracking experiments)
  3. Neurolinguistics
  4. Semantics and concepts
