I am a first-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at University of Pittsburgh adviced by Professor Xiang (Lorraine) Li. I got my Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E) degree in Data Science at University of Pennsylvania, where I worked with Professors Chris Callison-Burch and Lyle Ungar; I got my Bachelor of Science degree (B.S.) in Data Science at UC San Diego, where I worked with Professor Jingbo Shang, who was also my first mentor in the field of NLP.

My current research focus is natural language understanding, in particular, commonsense reasoning, event-centric reasoning, and grounded language understanding. More about my research expriences and projects can be found in my cv

Aside from NLP, I am also a cat person.
