Xiaolei Huang

Ph.D. @ University of Colorado Boulder

I am seeking for Research/Applied Scientist.

Brief Intro.

I'm currently a 4th year 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 & cross-lingual 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 cross-lingual transfer learning of low resourced languages.

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

See my [CV], The reference list is based on request.
