I am interested in helping computers to learn natural languages in the way humans do. Language is the conduit which bridges different forms of knowledge. So, by itself, it doesn't necessarily contain all the information. That's why I'm currently focusing on grounded language learning, especially in finding intuitive algorithms to perform relational learning on graphs and texts.
I'm applying to Ph.D. programs in the U.S. for Fall 2021. [CV]
