I am a Ph.D. student in the Data Mining Group @ UIUC, advised by Professor Jiawei Han. Before that, I was a member of the Knowledge Engineering Group (KEG) of Tsinghua University, supervised by Professor Jie Tang. I was a research intern in Cornell University in 2016, working with Professor Thorsten Joachims and his group.
I’m obsessed with exciting problems on natural language understanding and information extraction from unstructured data. Please feel free to drop me an email on any interesting topics!
