I am a first-year graduate student at Northeastern University. In 2009, I became a member of Natural Language Processing Laboratory. Since then, I started working under my supervisor Prof. Jingbo Zhu. In the summer of 2010, I graduated as a bachelor from Northeastern University. So, this is my first year as a graduate student, but the second year as a member of NEUNLPLab.

I come from City Ningbo, Province Zhejiang, which is about 2800 kilometers away from here. My hometown is a wonderful place, with comfortable climates, delicious sea foods, and charming girls. How much I miss my hometown.


I am interested in NLP (natural language processing), ML (machine learning) and AI (artifical intelligence). The dream of making machines as intelligent as we human beings might be the final goal. Now, I am working on phrase-based SMT.

Beyond Academics

I am a good basketball player and soccer player. I like reading various kinds of books, especially short novels. I am good at Chinese handwriting, and fond of drawing. I like swimming and playing computer games. But I am dreaming of becoming a real hacker, who wants learn the principles and details of inner machnisms of any systems. So, of course, I like programming, design and realize some trivil tools.
