Hey there, welcome!
I am now a Ph.D. student at Stanford University, working with Prof. Chris Manning on relation extraction and knowledge base construction. Previously I have worked with Prof. Russ Altman on biomedical relation extraction and knowledge discovery.
Before that, I obtained a M.S. degree in the Computer Science Department at Stanford University, with focus on Artificial Intelligence and Human-Computer Interaction. I also obtained a bachelor's degree from the Department of Electronic Engineering at Tsinghua University, China.
My work has been primarily focused on knowledge - both acquiring knowledge from text, and using structured knowledge to power downstream applications. For the former, I've worked on ontology, information retrieval and natural language processing. For the latter, biomedical knowledge discovery is one of the most exciting applications.
Here are some of my publications:
- Position-aware Attention and Supervised Data Improve Slot Filling

- Stanford at TAC KBP 2016: Sealing Pipeline Leaks and Understanding Chinese
