I am currently a postdoctoral researcher working with Lawrence Carin at Duke University. Before that, I worked with Rebecca J. Passonneau at both Columbia University and Pennsylvania State University. I received my PhD in Computer Science and Technology from Tsinghua University, advised by Gerard de Melo. At Tsinghua, I was a member of the Web Mining and Language Technology group, part of the Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences, which is led by Turing award winner Andrew Yao.
My current research focuses on a wide range of topics in Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, and the intersection of Machine Learning with Biomedical Data Science, Education, and Human-Computer Interaction.
