About


I am a second-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UC Santa Barbara, working on Natural Language Processing and Deep Learning. My adviser is Prof. William Y. Wang. My research interests lie specifically in the areas of information extraction, natural language processing and reinforcement learning. I am currently working on learning to reason with structured knowledge graph data.

Before coming to UCSB, I received my bachelor degree from University of Science and Technology of China (1210) in 2016.
