Jungseock Joo

I'm an Assistant Professor in Communication and Statistics at UCLA. My main research areas include Human-AI interaction, computational social science, and explainable and fair computer vision and deep learning. I'm an interdisciplinary researcher, and my research has addressed a broad range of research questions and practical issues about AI in both technical and social aspects over the last 15 years.
I have worked in academia and industry and held positions in social science and engineering. My research has appeared in top venues in social sciences, engineering and computer science and been supported by NSF, Hellman Fellowship, and industrial sponsors. I'm currently a visiting researcher at Amazon Alexa AI.
