Academic/Industrial Experiences
Visiting Phd Student, University of California, Santa Barbara. 2018.09 - 2019.09
worked with Dr. William Wang , on disfluency detection and grammatical error detection.

Visiting Phd Student, Singapore University of Technology and Design. 2017.03 - 2017.12
worked with Dr. Yue Zhang, on disfluency detection and entity relation extraction.

Intern Researcher and Developer, iFLYTEK Inc., Research and Development Institute, Hefei. 2015.6 - 2015.9
Worked on Punctuation and Disfluency Detection.

Intern Researcher and Developer, Baidu Inc., NLP Department. 2014.6 - 2014.9
Worked on Query-based Synonym Mining.

Our system (Flying) achieves 2 first (Most valuable indicators), 1 second, 1 third among six tracks, out of 43 submitted
systems (17 teams). Chinese Grammatical Error Diagnosis (CGED) aims to diagnose four types of grammatical errors which
are missing words (M), redundant words (R), bad word selection (S) and disordered words (W). The automatic CGED system
contains two parts including error detection and error correction.

End-to-end Entity mention and Relation Extraction, 2017.3 - 2017.12
Supported by bluepool( The goal of end-to-end entity mention and relation extraction is to
discover relational structures of entity mentions from unstructured texts. Previous work mainly focus on sequence-level
relation extraction.

Disfluency Detection, 2014.10 - 2016.10
Supported by iFLYTEK. The purpose of disfluency detection is to detect the infelicities in spoken language transcripts.
We firstly regard the disfluency detection as a sequence-to-sequence problem and propose a neural attention-based model
which achieves the best reported performance.

Query-based Synonym Mining, 2014.6 - 2014.9
Supported by Baidu. Based on the assumption that synonym should have similar user clicks when querying,
we try to use search engine's query log for synonym mining and finally obtain about a million synonyms.
