About Me

I am a senior undergraduate student at Peking University advised by Prof. Xiaojun Wan. Previously, I interned at the Web Information Retrieval / Natural Language Processing Group of National University of Singapore, where I was fortunate to work with Prof. Min-Yen Kan. In 2022 Fall, I will join the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor as a PhD student, advised by Prof. Lu Wang. I am interested in researching reliable natural language processing technologies that deal with diversified, real-world textual data. Particularly, I have worked on robustness in NLP and creative language understanding/generation.
