About me

I am a second-year PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at the University of Cambridge, supervised by Prof. Simone Teufel, sponsored by Toshiba Research Europe Limited. I see myself as a computational linguist with research interests in argument mining with real-world text, and in natural language processing in general. I am also a member of the NLIP Research Group at the University of Cambridge.

I obtained my MSc in Speech and Language Processing at the University of Edinburgh. Before that, I was an undergraduate in Foreign Languages and Literatures at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China.

My research focuses on automatically understanding arguments that people post on the Internet. I do believe a better understanding of each other can reduce discrimination, prejudice, and stereotyping.
