About

I am a third year Ph.D. student at Northeastern University. I work with Prof. Lu Wang on Natural Language Processing.
Prior to that I spent 4 years at Shanghai Jiao Tong University studying Computer Science. I was a member of ADAPT lab directed by Prof. Kenny Zhu.
Currently I’m working on Natural Language Generation, Argument Mining, and Chinese Named Entity Linking.

I’m interning at IBM Research AI from June-Sept 2019, working with Avi Sil.
