I'm a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science, Johns Hopkins University. As a member of Center for Language and Speech Processing, I'm currently involved in research on statistical machine translation. Yet personally, I'm interested in problems of all categories in the field of natural language processing. My current academic advisor is Philipp Koehn.

Before joining Johns Hopkins in fall 2014, I got my Bachelor's degree in Beijing University of Posts & Telecommunications. During the last year of my undergraduate study, I worked with Weiwei Sun in the Language Computing and Web Mining Group of Institute of Computer Science & Technology, Peking University, with a focus on semantic parsing and Chinese word segmentation.
