About Me

I am Kenneth Huang (Ting-Hao, 黃挺豪). I am currently a PhD student in Language Technologies Institute (LTI) of Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). My main research interests are in crowd-powered system and natural language processing.

I obtained my B.S. degree in Computer Science and my B.A. in Chinese Literature from National Taiwan University (NTU) in 2007. I then worked with Prof. Hsin-Hsi Chen on sentiment analysis and received my M.S. in Computer Science from NTU. Later in 2011, I started my study in LTI, CMU with Prof. Teruko Mitamura on metaphor detection and interpretation.

After receiving my second M.S. in Computer Science, I developed my research interests toward the collaboration between language technology and crowd intelligence. I am now working with Prof. Jeffery Bigham in Human-Computer Interaction Institute to explore the possibility of combining language technology into crowd-powered systems.

Asides from research, I also consider myself a writer. I write fictions, essays, poems, and drama scripts in Mandarin. You can find some of my work on my Mandarin blog (風神之舞).
