I am now an Assistant Researcher in Department of Computer Science and Technology, Nanjing University. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from The Ohio State University. I am fortunate to work with my advisor, Prof. Alan Ritter (now in Georgia Tech). Before that, I obtained my MS degree in Electrical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and my BS degree from the School of Electronic Science and Engineering at Nanjing University.

I mainly work on Natural Language Processing. I am interested in social media analysis and computational social science. I am also working on bandit algorithms.
