Dongjun Lee

I am M.S student at Graduate school of AI, KAIST, co-advised by Prof. Kimin Lee and Prof. Jinwoo Shin. I am looking forward to begin my internship at Microsoft Research Asia since September 2024.

My research goal is to make AI agent capable of sequential decision making and self-improvement. To achieve this, I focus on: (1). Large-scale models (e.g., LLMs, MLLMs) and learning algorithms to imbue them with human-like decision making capabilities in the real-world environment, and (2) Algorithms for lifelong learning of AI agent through interaction with world. Additionally, I have a broad interest in various reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms and their applications in robotics.
