About me

Hi there! Welcome to my personal homepage. I’m a second year Ph.D. Student in Computer Science and Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology supervised by Professor Yangqiu Song. I received my bachelor degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from the same institution in 2022, and I’m now funded by the HKPFS award.

I am open to supervising undergraduate students who are highly motivated, academically strong, and possess strong coding ability. If you are interested in NLP and would like to collaborate with me, please email me with your CV and unofficial transcript. My email can be found at the left.
