Biography

I am a DPhil (PhD) student at the University of Oxford, advised by Matt Kusner and Phil Blunsom. Previously, I worked at Facebook AI Research in New York under the supervision of Douwe Kiela. I obtained my Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree from Department of Computer Science, National University of Singapore in 2016, working with Anthony K.H. Tung. Previously, I received my Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng) degree from Shandong University in 2014.

My primary research interests lie in natural language processing and machine learning. I am particularly interested in applying deep learning techniques for natural language understanding, text mining and graph representations.
