Hi, I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science department at the University of Texas at Austin, working with Professor Greg Durrett. My main research interests lie within natural language processing. Specifically, I am interested in building robust and interpretable question answering systems. For example, models producing discrete reasoning chains can be more effective and debuggable in the multi-hop QA setting. Aligning the sub-parts of the question and the context can lead to better calibrated QA models, particularly in the adversarial setting. Using an entailment model as a verifier can help QA models generalize better across domains.
Before coming to UT Austin, I finished my undergraduate study at Fudan University. I also received a master degree from Fudan where I was advised by Professor Xuanjing Huang, Qi Zhang, and Xipeng Qiu.
Ph.D. in Computer Science, 2017 - now

BSc in Computer Science, 2010 - 2014
I started playing video games since I was a small kid. The first game I played is The Legend of Sword and Fairy(仙剑奇侠传). I used to be a big fan of Blizzard and played every single game they released. I had been playing World of the Warcraft for 13 years (2005 - 2018).
