Bio

I am a Ph.D student at College of Computer and Information Science, Northeastern University, working with Prof. Javed A. Aslam and Prof. Virgil Pavlu, and also worked with Prof. Lu Wang. I received my B.Eng. from Wuhan University in 2014, M.A. from Brandeis University in 2016.

Research Interests

I'm interested in natural language processing and machine learning. I'm currently working on conversation summarization. I am also interested in studying persuasiveness in arguments, and decephering the effectiveness of a discussion.
