Short Bio

Currently, 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, where I enjoyed the best time of life and found my life goals.

Speaking of research, I've been steadily working on and have great interests in Natural Language Proceesing and Machine Learning. My current research areas include: Discourse Parsing, Question Answering and Semantic Parsing. I also develop some funny applications and websites during my spare time.
