Biography

I am a Staff Research Scientist at Baidu Research, USA.

I received my Ph.D. in the Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Department at Oregon State University working with Professor Liang Huang in ACL Group.

I received my Bachelor and Master degree from Tongji University, Shanghai.

I have worked with Professor Rao and Professor Liu during my master degree.

I have also worked with Professor Qiu in Fudan NLP Group as a visiting student.
