About Me

I am currently a research scientist at the Facebook AI Research in New York City. My general research interests lie in applying deep learning approaches to natural language processing (NLP) problems. In particular, I am interested in building an efficient, effective and reliable neural machine translation (NMT) system for human languages.

I obtained my Ph.D. degree at the department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Hong Kong in 2018 and I was supervised by Prof. Victor O.K. Li. I spent a wonderful time visiting the CILVR Lab, New York University working with Prof. Kyunghyun Cho. Before that, I obtained my Bachelor’s degree at the Electronic Engineering Department, Tsinghua University in 2014 with the guidance of Prof. Ji Wu.
