I am interested in computational sociolinguistics.
I finished my master study in Hirose & Minematsu Lab, Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Systems, the University of Tokyo. My advisor was Prof. Keikichi Hirose.
I got my B.S. degree in Machine Intelligence from Peking University in 2009. While there, I worked as a research assistant in Key Laboratory of Computational Linguistics (Peking Univ.), supervised by Prof. Yunfang Wu.
