I am a postdoctoral fellow at Carnegie Mellon University, working with Prof. Tom Mitchell. I completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University in August 2015, advised by Prof. Claire Cardie. I received my B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science from Peking University.

My research interests lie at the intersection of natural language processing and machine learning. Particularly, I am interested in developing and applying machine learning techniques for improving machine reading and knowledge extraction from text. My goal is to use NLP technologies to help people find, organize, and analyze various kinds of information embedded in large text corpora.
