Hi! I am a third-year PhD candidate at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and a member of PolyU NLP Group, advised by Prof. Maggie Wenjie Li. Currently, I am visiting the SLED Lab at University of Michigan, where I am honored to work with Prof. Joyce Chai.

Before that, I received my MSc and BEng degrees from the School of Computer Science and Engineering, South China University of Technology (SCUT), in 2020 and 2017, respectively. During the 2018 to 2019, I was fortunate to be co-advised by Prof. Min Yang at SIAT, Chinese Academy of Sciences.


I have broad interests in Conversational AI and Natural Language Processing (NLP), including but not limited to the following topics:

😀 I am open to collaborations and discussions. Please feel free to reach out to me if you are interested in my research or any relevant topics.
