About me

My name is Kun Xu. I'm a Senior Researcher at Tencent AI Lab, Seattle, US. Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral researcher at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, US.

I obtained a PhD degree in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning from Peking University. My work was supervised by Yansong Feng and Dongyan Zhao.

My research interests cover topics in NLP, such as Semantic Parsing, Knowledge Based Question Answering, Information Extraction, Natural Language Interface to Databases.
