I am a 4th-year undergraduate student in computer science at Yale University. I research natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning (ML), advised by Prof. Dragomir Radev (@ LILY lab) and Prof. John Lafferty.

My research aims to develop machine learning methods for natural language understanding. Recent interests include summarization (YZMPSR'17), semantic parsing (YYYZWLR'18), commonsense inference (annotated bib), and mathematical text modeling (YL'19). I am also interested in the robustness and interpretability of machine learning techniques (especially of neural networks) in NLP (YKR'18).

I co-organize a workshop on scientific document summarization at SIGIR 2018.
