Greetings! I am a second-year Ph.D. student at the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago, advised by Prof. Karen Livescu and Prof. Kevin Gimpel. Prior to that, I received my B.S. degree from Peking University, China, where I did my undergraduate thesis with Prof. Junfeng Hu.
My research interests are in computational linguistics and natural language processing.
I am particularly interested in structure, ambiguity and metaphors in natural languages.
My past and present research focuses on answering the following questions:
I am also interested in various topics in natural language processing and machine learning.
For more details, see my academic c.v.
To what extent can we extract structures of natural language without explicit supervision? What inductive bias is necessary and what is not? (SMGL '19)
To what extent can meaningful structure priors (e.g., parse trees) and contrastive examples help machine language understanding? (SZCL '18, SMXJS '18)
To what extent can we detect and interpret multi-sense words and metaphors without explicit supervision? (SLH '16, SSH '18)
