Introduction

I'm a Ph.D. student in the CSE department at UC San Diego, advised by Prof. Ndapa Nakashole. My research areas are Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. My main research focus is on natural language interfaces, i.e. to allow users to use systems via natural language instructions, so as to reduce the learning overhead or expertise requirement. I'm interested in the ways to construct and utilize structured information for natural language interfaces, including databases (DB), knowledge bases (KB), etc. I'm also interested in many highly-related tasks, including task-oriented dialogs, text-to-SQL parsing, text generation and knowledge base construction. Previously, I received my bachelor's degree in Computer Science at Peking University.
