  • Biography

    I am a senior research engineer at Baidu Inc. I received my Master Degree in Computer Engineering from Northeastern University (in Boston). I was a member of Northeastern NLP Group and worked with Prof. Lu Wang (now at UMich). I'm also privileged to work with Prof. Lifu Huang from Virginia Tech.

    I'm generally interested in computational linguistics and natural language processing. My goal is to design methods that can understand human languages of various domains, and also generate factual and coherent outputs, with a focus on long-form discourse (e.g., argumentation, summarization). Recently I also work on leveraging LLMs as agent and refining LLMs through instruction tuning, with the application on creative and interactive text generation.
