About Me

Freda (Haoyue) SHI

Greetings! I am a first-year Ph.D. student at Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago , advised by Prof. Karen Livescu and Prof. Kevin Gimpel. Prior to that, I received my B.S. degree with summa cum laude from Peking University, China.

My research interests are computational linguistics and natural language processing. Specifically, I study semantic representations from computational, logical and multimodal perspectives of view. My recent research topics include:

Selected Publications

Full Publication List


  • I was an OI -> ACM-ICPC competitor "when I was young".

  • I play Guqin.
    At the very first time, I follow Jiu-Yi School. My style is also influenced by Mr. Gong Yi a lot.
    I served as the minister of PKU Guqin Society from August 2016 to August 2017.

  • I write papers, and sometimes, poems (in either Traditional or Simplified Chinese).

  • I love Ludwig Wittgenstein and (most of) his theories.

  • I reviewed a book (Chapters of basic algorithms, data structures and mathematics) on Olympiad of Informatics, of which the author was Yudong (Victor) Li. FYI, Victor is a famous (as far as I know, how?) competitor in Olympiad in Informatics and ACM-ICPC in China. He was known as "lydrainbowcat". [Buy the book, in Simplified Chinese]

  • I'd prefer Freda in person, but Haoyue is good as long as you like.
    I am always Haoyue Shi on publications and conference presentations for "historical" reasons.
    I also have other "nickname"s -- feel free to use whichever you know!
