My research interests are in designing algorithms to tackle the core problems in natural language processing (NLP). My work utilizes methods from machine learning, optimization and combinatorial algorithms with applications related to syntactic parsing, machine translation, and social media.

I am very lucky to be co-advised by Professor Noah Smith and Professor Chris Dyer, and I am a member of Noah's ARK and clab. Before coming to CMU, I worked for a year in IBM China Systems and Technology Lab.

I am now working at the University of Washington as a visiting Ph.D. student. You can find me in office 386 in the Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science and Engineering.

In the summer of 2016, I interned in Google Research in NYC, working with Dr. David Weiss.
