I am a fourth year Ph.D. student in Harbin Institute of Technology. I love to understand phenomenon and imagine new stuffs in fields of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. I did my undergrad at Central China Normal University, a beautiful university settled in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. Please see my resume for more details on my project experience.

Research Interests - I generally identify with the community that values reliable AI the most, and researches into both theoretiacal and empirical aspects of current data-driven paradigm of AI. More specifically, I am really interested in the following "friends" who I might have not got a chance to get along closely with:

  • Machine translation and multilinguality
  • (Realistic) generalization and compositionality
  • Interpretability

You can see the [Research Interests] file for a in-depth discussion.
