About me

I am a third-year Ph.D. student at MIT EECS, and a member of the NLP Group at CSAIL. My research advisor is Prof. Regina Barzilay. Currently, I am interested in designing data-efficient machine learning methods for NLP applications.

Before coming to MIT, I was an undergraduate at Tsinghua University, working with Prof. Jie Tang.
