I am an enthusiastic AI researcher and effective altruist. I am a 1st-year Ph.D. working on NLP & Causality with Bernhard Schoelkopf, who is a professor at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Germany & ETH Zürich. I am co-supervised by Prof Rada Mihalcea at University of Michigan, and Prof Mrinmaya Sachan at ETH Zürich. Previously, I was a research intern at Amazon AI (2019-2020), supervised by Prof Zheng Zhang, Prof Xipeng Qiu and Dr. David Wipf.
My career goal is to be a professor in NLP, and actively promote NLP for social good. To this end, I am organizing the 1st workshop on NLP for Positive Impact at ACL 2021, and 1st workshop on RobustML at ICLR 2021. I am also engaged in Effective Altruism, a social movement to involve people in doing good with high efficiency. Previously, I obtained my bachelor’s degree (1st Class Honors) from the University of Hong Kong. [More info]
Here is a list of topics I work on:
- Causality & NLP: Two ongoing projects in this promising virgin field.
- NLP for Social Good: See our workshop on NLP for Positive Impact@ACL 2021.
- Text Generation TextGen: Graph-to-text generation; text style transfer; adversarial generation (for NLP robustness Robust).
- Information Extraction IE: Relation Extraction (RE); Named Entity Recognition (NER).
- Medical AI Medical: NER on clinical notes; clinical outcome prediction.
- I also have a growing interest in epistemology, AI for policy making, and AI for career coaching. Feel free to contact me for interdisciplinary research.
- May 7, 2021 (PT 8am-5pm): Our RobustML workshop will take place at ICLR 2021! Invited speakers include Percy Liang, Dawn Song, etc.
- Jan 25, 2021: Our paper on one-to-many mapping of cycle training is accepted to AISTATS 2021!
- Dec 27, 2020: I will present our EMNLP 2020 paper ABSA robustness at CSSNLP seminar.
- Dec 18, 2020: I presented two papers at the INLG 2020 workshop, WebNLG+.
- Dec 12, 2020: Our RobustAI workshop is accepted to ICLR 2021!
