About me

I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Institute of Information Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences, under the supervision of Associate Researcher. Tingwen Liu and Researcher. Bin Wang. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Central South University in Changsha, China in 2017. My research interests mainly lie in Information Extraction, but also include Metric Learning and Unsupervised Learning. Up to now, I have published several papers in the world top conferences such as WWW, ACL, EMNLP, AAAI and IJCAI. I am a program committee member of top conferences (e.g., ACL, AAAI, EMNLP) and journals (e.g., WWWJ and TKDE).
