Liangming Pan (潘亮铭) is a final-year Computer Science Ph.D. student at the National University of Singapore, jointly advised by Prof. Min-Yen Kan and Prof. Tat-Seng Chua. Before joining NUS, he received Master’s degree from the School of Computer Science at Tsinghua University in June 2017, working with Prof. Juanzi Li and Prof. Jie Tang. He obtained his Bachelor’s degree from Beihang University (2010 - 2014).
His broad research interests include knowledge bases, natural language processing, and data mining. To be specific, his research topics include neural question generation, text style transfer, and zero/few-shot image recognition.
He is now joining the UC Santa Barbara Natural Language Processing Group as a visiting Ph.D. student, supervised by Prof. William Wang.
