I'm a third-year PhD student in the College of Computer Science and Technology at Zhejiang University in China. My advisors are Prof. Xiaofei He and Prof. Deng Cai.

My research focuses on Natural Language Processing (NLP), especially question answering and text generation. In May 2017, our proposed model (MEMEN) achieved the second place on the leaderboard of the Stanford Question Answering Dataset (SQuAD).

In 2016, I got my Bachelor's degree in Mathematical Science from Zhejiang University. In the summer of 2014, I attended the summer school program at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
