Hi! Welcome to my homepage!
I am currently a fourth-year Ph.D. Candidate at University of British Columbia, working on NLP and under the supervision of Professor Giuseppe Carenini.
I obtained my M.S. degree from the Department of Computer Science, University of Colorado Boulder in 2018 under the supervison of Professor Michael J. Paul. Before that, I received my B.S. degree from School of Computer Science & Technology, Soochow University in 2016.
I am interested in natural language processing, machine learning and social computing. Particularly, I am working on the evaluation of topic model, as well as novel methods to integrate topic models with neural-based models.
