My advisor is Prof. Jimmy Lin. My research interest lies at the intersection of deep learning, information retrieval and NLP. My PhD thesis is about modeling temporal contexts for text retrieval, with applications on social media search, voice search and human-machine conversation generation.
Recently I intern in the Comcast AI Research Lab, working on neural networks for improving their XFINITY voice search system. Our work was also awarded by the 69th Emmy Award (2017) for the technical contribution in advancing television technologies. In the past summers, I had great research internship experiences at
Microsoft. I also served as program committee member or reviewer in some conferences/journals, including ACL'18, VLDB'17, ICTIR'17, etc.
[News] I am looking for full time jobs starting in Aug. 2018, including both academic and industry positions. Feel free to reach to me (my resume) if you are interested.
