Hi! My name is Zhichao Hu, people call me Chao.

I'm a Ph.D student in UCSC working with Prof. Marilyn Walker in the area of Natural Language Processing. I'm currently working on linguistic and gestural adaptation. My interests also cover event relation extraction, natural language generation with respect to personality, sentiment analysis and data mining in social media.
