Hi! I am a Fourth year PhD student at University of Hong Kong, affiliated with the HKU database group. I am advised by Prof. Ben Kao. I am also working closely with Dr. Lingpeng Kong. Previously, I received my B.Eng. degree from Wuhan University in 2017, supervised by Prof. Chenliang Li.


I am fascinated by the interpretability research in neural network models, with a focus on natural language processing. Recently, I am also interested in knowledge-grounded natural language understanding (e.g. KBQA) and generation (e.g. multimodal translation, knowledge-grounded dialogue system).

Update: I'm currently seeking opportunities for industry research positions!
