NLP master at the University of Washington.

I am a CLMS student at the University of Washington (UW) advised by Noah Smith. I am broadly interested in computational linguistics and natural language processing (NLP). At Noah’s ARK, I work with Maarten Sap and Swabha Swayamdipta on social NLP problems; Nikolaos Pappas on document-level language understanding. Besides, I also work with Shane Steinert-Threlkeld on interpretability of NLP models and emergent communication.

I got my bachelor degree in Statistics at Nanjing University (NJU), where I did research in NLP with Shujian Huang. Previously, I interned at Singapore University of Technology and Design and Westlake University working with Yue Zhang. I spent a wonderful junior year at the University of California, Berkeley (UCB), where I made up my mind researching language technologies.
