I am now a second-year Ph.D. student in computer science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, under the supervision of Prof. Snigdha Chaturvedi. My research interests include natural language generation and understanding. Before moving to Chapel Hill, I spent my first year at Santa Cruz, an incredibly beautiful county near the Bay Area.

I received my master degree in Computer Technology from Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), under the supervision of Prof. Yi Guan. I got my Bachelor's degree in Flight Vehicle Design and Engineering from the School of Astronautics, HIT in 2016.
