About Me

My new homepage is moving here!

I am now a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Blender Lab, Computer Science Department, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, supervised by Prof. Heng Ji

I have a broad interest in real world problems related to natural languages, especially to information extraction and knowledge base completion. One of the main challenges for current information extraction tasks is how to extend from the traditional/predefined IE paradigm to a liberal, un-predefined, open, domain adaptive IE paradigm, which form the core of my current research - Liberal Information Extraction

I'm also interested in deep learning techniques, especially in word embedding related techniques, and the applications of neural networks for IE tasks.

I love reading, thinking, discussing, and learning how to communicate and present ideas clearly.
