I'm a Third year Ph.D student at Zhejiang University in China, and now I am a visiting scholar in SunLab at Ohio State University (OSU) in USA. My research interests focus on natural language processing (NLP), especially question answering and text generation. I work in Machine Learning Group with Prof. Xiaofei He and Prof. Deng Cai. In 2016, I got my bachelor degree in the School of Mathematical Science at Zhejiang University.

In May 2017, our model (MEMEN) achieved the second place on the leaderboard of the Stanford Question Answering Dataset (SQuAD).
