My research interest includes various aspects of natural language processing, especially semantics and knowledge discovery on large corpora. My recent work lies at the crossroads between question answering, information extraction and information retrieval.
In addition to natural languages, I'm also interested in the theory of programming languages, especially the construction of expressive, typesafe DSLs for various domain applications.
Before joining Johns Hopkins, I obtained my B.Sc. in Computer Science from Peking University, working with Prof. Junfeng Hu in the Institute of Computational Linguistics with a focus on word segmentation and network analysis.
