I am currently working at the Search & Recommendation Team of Alibaba Group, where efforts are made to build intelligent e-commerce search and recommendation experience. Specifically, I am focusing on building the largest e-commerce concept net in the world, with whose help we are able to better understand various shopping needs of our customers. Before that, I earned my Master's Degree of Computer Science at ADAPT-Lab, Shanghai Jiao Tong University in March 2018, under supervision of Prof. Kenny Q. Zhu. Prior to that, I obtained B.Eng of Computer Science from IEEE Honored Class, Shanghai Jiao Tong University in June 2015.



My recent work has been focused on enabling machines to understand human languages and further gain the ability of reasoning. In particular, I am devoted to providing industrial-level solutions. My way of tackling this task is to extract structured knowledge from massive noisy texts and develop models to reason among the concepts using the knowledge.

I'm a former member of the Advanced Data And Programming Technology Lab (ADAPT-Lab) .
