Sanxing Chen




I'm a first-year master student in computer science at the University of Virginia, where I work with Prof. Yangfeng Ji.

My long-term research interests lie primarily in helping computers to learn natural languages like us human. Currently, I focus on developing intuitive learning algorithms for grounded language learning and code generation (which constitute semantic parsing).

Previously, I had experiences in a few natural language processing applications. For instance, I have been working on domain adaptation for machine translation as my undergraduate dissertation with Prof. Xiaohui Ji. And I luckily interned twice at the Microsoft Research Asia in the BotSys team (formerly belongs to BDM group, now part of the KC group) where I was working on generic types entitiy recognition under the supervision of Dr. Börje Karlsson and Guoxin Wang.
