About me

I am a third year PhD student at NUS Graduate School for Integrative Sciences and Engineering (NGS), National University of Singapore. I am associated with the Web Information Retrieval / Natural Language Processing Group (WING) and jointly advised by Prof. Min-Yen Kan and Prof. Tat-Seng Chua. My board research interests include knowledge base, natural language processing, and data mining. My thesis topic is on learning to knowledge-enhanced deep question generation. Besides this, I am also working on topics related to expertise style transfer, and zero/few-shot image recognition.

Prior to joining NUS, I received my Master degree from Tsinghua University under the guidance of Prof. Juanzi Li and Prof. Jie Tang (2014 - 2017). My master’s thesis is about data mining in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Before that, I obtained my bachelor degree in Beihang University (2010 - 2014).
