I'm a fourth-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. Now I'm a visiting scholar at UIUC and work with Dr. Bo Li.
My research interests fall in the general areas and applications of machine learning and natural language processing (NLP), especially the recent developments in transfer learning, common sense reasoning, reinforcement learning to work towards the goal of the combination of language understanding and generation. In May 2017, our proposed model (MEMEN) achieved the second place on the leaderboard of the Stanford Question Answering Dataset (SQuAD).
• I am excited to visit the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and work with Dr. Bo Li!
• Our paper "Discriminate and Reconstruct: Learning from Language Model to Answer Keyword Questions" got accepted in CCHI 2019 (oral), Xi'an, China.
• I'm excited to join the Alibaba DAMO Academy as a research intern!
• Our paper "Reinforced Dynamic Reasoning for Conversational Question Generation" got accepted in ACL 2019, Florence, Italy.
