About me

I am a master student in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, graduating in May 2019. I received my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Currently seeking a PhD.

I’m interested in graph based representations of language and knowledge. Specifically, this includes relation extraction/event extraction for knowledge base construction under weak supervision, using knowledge bases to assist natural language inference and graph representation learning. In my undergraduate years, I worked on social network analysis.
