I am now a first-year Ph.D. student in computer science at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), under the supervision of Prof. Snigdha Chaturvedi. My research interests include natural language processing and machine learning. I am especially interested in interpretable neural architectures for sentence representation.

I received my master degree in Computer Technology from the School of Computer and Technology, Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), under the supervision of Prof. Yi Guan. I got my Bachelor's degree in Flight Vehicle Design and Engineering from School of Astronautics, HIT in 2016.
