About me

I got my PhD degree supervised by Professor Liang Huang in the Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Department at Oregon State University, Master degree (Computer Science) and Bachelor degree (Communication Engineering) from the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications.

My research interests include Computational Biology and Natural Language Processing.
