Xiaolei Huang

Ph.D. @ University of Colorado Boulder

Brief Intro.

I'm currently a 3rd Ph.D. student of Information Science (advised by Prof. Michael J. Paul) @ the University of Colorado Boulder. Previously, I graduated from the Chinese Academy of Sciences with MSc. degree in Computer Science.

My current research interest is in domain adaptation & transfer learning, with applications in health informatics. For example, I modeled and analyzed public health issues (flu vaccination services and mental health) via social media. I also had some experience in multilingual transfer learning of named entity recognition.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking and doing volunteering works. I volunteered in YMCA, One Heartland as well as local nursing house, etc. I love cooking and traveling.
