My general research involves Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning.

I joined Knowledge Science and Engineering Lab of Southeast University at 2014. I worked with Prof. Guilin Qi, also closely with Dr. Tianxing Wu. There, I focused on Entity Linking, that is the task of determining the identity of entities mentioned in text. Potential application includes Question Answering and Knowledge Graph.

I joined 17zuoye (aka Homework Together) after graduation from SEU. There, I focused on Automated Essay Scoring, along with Spell Checking and Grammar Error Correction. As a leading EdTech Company, 17zuoye is committed to improve learning experience for Chinese students. We are dedicated to build an advanced Intelligent Tutoring System to achieve that goal.
