I am a Senior Applied Scientist at Microsoft Turing.
I successfully defended my Ph.D. thesis at Center for Language and Speech Processing at Johns Hopkins University, working with my advisor Prof. Benjamin Van Durme. My research interest at Hopkins includes various aspects of natural language processing, focusing on semantics and knowledge discovery on large corpora. My recent work lies at the crossroads between question answering, textual inference and information retrieval.
Prior to Hopkins, I obtained my B.Sc. in Computer Science from Peking University, working with Prof. Junfeng Hu in the Institute of Computational Linguistics with a focus on word segmentation and network analysis.
In addition to natural languages, I'm also interested in programming languages: I design expressive, typesafe DSLs for various domain applications (e.g. deep learning).
