I am a research associate in the Language Technologies Institute of School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. I am very fortunate to be advised by Prof. Louis-Philippe Morency and Prof. Graham Neubig. I am a member of MultiComp Lab and NeuLab.
My research interests lie in deep learning, natural language processing and multi-modal machine learning, the vibrant multi-disciplinary research field that focuses on integrating and modeling multiple communicative modalities, including linguistic, acoustic and visual messages. My enthusiasm is to build more human-like interactive agents to better understand, interpret and reason about the world around us.
I obtained my Master of Science degree in Intelligent Information Systems degree from Carnegie Mellon University and my Bachelor’s degree from School of Software Engineering, Fudan University. In Summer 2016, I was a research intern at Carnegie Mellon University working with Prof. Justine Cassell at ArticuLab on Socially Aware Robot Assistant.
MSc in Intelligent Information Systems, 2018

A reinforcement learning agent to perform non-greedy decoding with transition-based dependency parser by considering the future rewards.
An efficient method to integrate multiple unimodal representations (e.g. verbal, visual and audio) into one compact multimodal representation.
SARA is a socially-aware robot assistant that can interact with people through personalizing the interaction.
I “worked” as a little art editor at a teenage magazine office where I was paid for each illustration I drew from seven years old to fifteen years old.
I love painting. To me, painting is like another medium (besides verbal and nonverbal behaviors) for expressing feelings and thoughts.
I enjoy traveling, exploring new restaurants, watching Japanese animations, and swimming.
I can speak Shanghainese (native), Chinese Mandarin (native), Japanese (conversational), and English (fluent).
I hope to use technology to help minority groups and improve people’s quality of life.
