BIOGRAPHY

I am a Professor (Associate Professor 2012.12-2018.9; Assistant Professor 2010.7-2012.12) of Computer Science in the IR Laboratory at the Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

I received my PhD degree in Pattern Recognition and Intelligent Systems from National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition(NLPR), Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences under the Supervision of Professor Jun Zhao in July, 2010. My Ph.D Thesis deals with Named Entity Disambiguation.

RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research interests center on large scale knowledge base population using heterogeneous information sources(such as Web, Wikipedia, etc.) and its applications in IR and NLP, including:

Natural Language Understanding

  • Semantic Parsing
  • Entity Linking
  • Question Answering

Knowledge Graph/Information Extraction

  • Entity Set Expansion
  • Relation Extraction
  • Event Extraction
