Short Bio

I am a final-year Ph.D. student at the Institute of Computing Technology (ICT), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), where I am more than lucky to be co-supervised by Prof. Qing He and Prof. Fuzhen Zhuang. My research interests lie in data mining and applied machine learning, with a special focus on the representation and application of knowledge graphs. Before joining ICT, I obtained my B.Eng. in Computer Science and Technology from Bejing Institute of Technology.
Currently, I am visiting the NLP group at University College London, where I work with Dr. Pasquale Minervini and Prof. Sebastian Riedel. Advertisement: I am expected to graduate in Jan 2021, and I'm now actively looking for a data mining related position in either academia or industry.
