I am currently an applied research scientist intern at Amazon Web Services (AWS). I am working on text generation with knowledge graph grounding, supervised by Prof Zheng Zhang.

In undergraduate study, I worked remotely with the Clinical Decision Group of Prof Peter Szolovits at MIT CSAIL. My undergraduate research thesis is supervised by Prof Benjamin Kao at the University of Hong Kong. During 2017 – 2018, I was a special student at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I worked on NLP algorithms and applications to clinical decisions, with Enrico Santus and Prof Charlotta Lindvall.

Here is my CV.
