I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student in Prof. Jiawei Han's Data Mining Group, Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Prior to UIUC, I received my bachelor degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, under the supervision of Prof. Xinbing Wang, and I was a member of IEEE Honored Class.
My research focuses on constructing multi-faceted taxonomy from massive unstructured text corpora and enhancing text understanding with constructed taxonomies. My works lay in the intersection of data mining, natural language processing and information retrieval.
Mar. 2019 - I am honored to receive 2019-2020 Yunni & Maxine Pao Memorial Fellowship.
Nov. 2018 - My work on Mining Entity Synonym Set with Distant Supervision and Set Representation Learning has been accepted into AAAI 2019. Its PyTorch implementation is available in Github along with the synonym datasets. Full documentations of code are available at here.
Nov. 2018 - Together with Yu Meng, our paper on Weakly-supervised Hierarchical Text Classification has been accepted into AAAI 2019.
