Academic/Industrial Experiences
Visiting Phd Student, University of California, Santa Barbara. 2018.09 - present
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.

PROJECTS
End-to-end Entity mention and Relation Extraction, 2017.3 - 2017.12
Supported by bluepool(http://www.bluepool.tech/). 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.
