Yishu Miao

I am taking a post-doc position at University of Oxford.

I was a PhD student working with Prof. Phil Blunsom in the Machine Learning & NLP research group.

During my PhD, I have been working on deep generative models, neural variational inference and the corresponding applications for NLP. Recently, I'm focusing on natural language grounding and machine learning in robotics.

Prior to Oxford, I did my master on Data Mining, working with Prof. Chunping Li at Tsinghua University.
