I am currently a doctoral candidate at Harbin Institute of Technology, affiliated with the center for Social Computing and Information Retrieval (SCIR), supervised by Wanxiang Che, Haifeng Wang and Ting Liu. My research interests are in the areas of natural language processing, machine learning, with special interests on distributed representation learning and its applications on NLP tasks (mostly structure prediction problems). From 2014 to 2015, I am a joint Ph.D student at the Center for Language and Speech Processing (CLSP), Johns Hopkins University, supervised by David Yarowsky. Prior to that, I received my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Computer Science and Technology from Harbin Institute of Technology, Harbin, China. I received the Baidu Fellowship in 2015.
* I am looking for a postdoc/researcher position starting from 2017.
