I am an enthusiastic NLP researcher and effective altruist. I am a PhD in NLP and Causality with Bernhard Schoelkopf at Max Planck Institute, Tuebingen, Germany, and also a research scientist intern with Amazon AI. I am in the meantime mentored by Prof Rada Mihalcea from University of Michigan. 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. [More info]
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: Two ongoing projects in this promising virgin field.
- I also have a growing interest in philosophy, epistemology, and how to improve the political system. Feel free to contact me for interdisciplinary research.
- Nov 21, 2020: We achieved the 1st place at the INLG 2020 workshop, WebNLG+. Plus, our second paper, CycleGT, is admitted to the workshop too.
- Nov 17, 2020: Our ABSA robustness paper is presented at EMNLP 2020!
- Nov 7, 2020: Our 1st workshop on NLP for Positive Impact is accepted to ACL@2021!
- Sept 30, 2020: 1 paper accepted to COLING 2020: GenWiki, an unsupervised graph-to-text dataset with 1.3M data.
- Sept 14, 2020: 2 papers accepted to EMNLP 2020: (1) ABSA robustness, and (2) Relation of Relations for RE (later withdrawn).
- July 6-8, 2020: I presented my paper, Hooks in the Headline, at ACL 2020.
- June 6-7, 2020: Attended the Berkeley-organized CHAI Workshop towards safer AI.
