Work Experience


My interests are Natural Language Processing (NLP) and its applications. I am doing research in Proteus Group with Professor Ralph Grishman. I also received a lot of help from our previous Postdoc Yifan He. I used to work on active learning for relation extraction. Recently, I collaborate more with Thien Huu Nguyen and Bonan Min on learning distributed representation for relations. Currently, I am working on my thesis to graduate in 2018. I will be interested in industrial research positions after that.
