Joonsuk (Jon) Park is an assistant professor in the Department of Math & Computer Science at the University of Richmond. His research interests primarily lie in data science, natural language processing, and argumentation, as well as their applications in various areas, such as recommendation and essay grading systems. He also conducts research on computer science education and seeks to apply the findings in his own classes.
