I am a senior undergrad at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, majoring in Computer Science as a member of IEEE Honor Class. My advisor is Prof. Kenny Q. Zhu. In this past summer, I worked with Prof. Wei Lu as a visiting fellow of StatNLP Group in Singapore. Currently, I am taking my research internship at Microsoft Research Asia. My research interests include Natural Language Processing, Information Extraction, Knowledge Base, Social Networks, Computational Social Science, Data Mining, etc.
I am applying to CS PhD programs in Fall 2018. [resume]
