About me

I am a second-year PhD student at the National Center for Text Mining (NaCTeM) at the University of Manchester, advised by Prof. Sophia Ananiadou. In June 2020, I received my Master degree from the School of Computer Science and Technology, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS). Prior to this, I received my BS degree from Nankai University in June 2017.

My current research interests include Natural Language Processing (especially BioNLP), Artificial Intelligence and so on. 🎉
