Ph.D., Computer Science, UCLA
B.S. in Computer Science, Fudan University
I am an Assistant Research Professor at the USC Department of Computer Science. My research focuses on data-driven machine learning approaches for processing structured data, and knowledge acquisition from unstructured data. Particularly, I am interested in developing knowledge-aware learning systems with generalizability and requiring minimal supervision, and with concrete applications to natural language understanding, knowledge base construction, computational biology and medicine. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow with Dan Roth at UPenn. I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from UCLA in 2019, where I worked with Carlo Zaniolo, Kai-Wei Chang and Wei Wang. Before joining UCLA as a Ph.D. student, I graduated with a Bachelor degree from Fudan University in 2014 where I worked with X. Sean Wang.
