I will start my Master of Mathematics (CS) study in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo from September, 2018. My supervisor is Prof. Jimmy Lin. Before coming to Waterloo, I got my bachelor degree from School of Software Engineering at Tongji University, Shanghai.

My primary research interest lies at the intersection of Deep Learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP). Recently, I've been working on abstractive text summarization. I'm also interested and had experience in Knowledge Base, Social Network Analysis and Mining Software Repostory.

This is my CV.
