Short Bio

I am a final-year master student in the Computer Science Department at Peking University. I'm a member of the Institute of Computational Linguistics and work under the supervision of Prof. Li Sujian. Prior to that, I received B.Eng. in Computer Science from the IEEE Pilot Class, Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

My research interests mainly lie in the fileds of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. My research goal is to teach machines to understand human language and assist humans in an effective way. More specifically, I'm now focusing on Machine Reading, Reasoning in NLP and Semantic Parsing.
