Hi! I'm Xuan Zhang (张璇, ). I'm a second-year Ph.D. student in Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University (JHU), affiliated with Center for Language and Speech Processing (CLSP). I am advised by Prof. Kevin Duh.
My current research focuses on American sign language translation. Previously, I worked on speeding up training of neural machine translation (NMT) models, and spanned hyperparameter optimization, curriculum learning and domain adaptation.
Before joining CLSP-JHU, I obtained a M.S. in Computer Science at JHU, and did research in neural machine translation with Kevin Duh. Prior to that, I obtained a B.S. in Information Security from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC).
