📁 Google Scholar / 👩‍🎓 CV

I am an enthusiastic NLP researcher and effective altruist. I am currently doing research with Amazon AI, and I will soon start my PhD with Bernhard Schoelkopf at Max Planck Institute in Fall 2020. My dream is to be a professor and actively promote AI for social good. To this end, I am 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.

Here is a list of topics I work on:

  • Text Generation TextGen: Text style transfer; KG-to-text generation; 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.
  • Causality & Language
  • I also have a growing interest in philosophy, epistemology, and how to improve the political system. Feel free to contact me for interdisciplinary research.
