# Bio


I am interested in helping computers to learn natural languages in the way humans do. Language is the conduit (opens new window) 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 received my MS degree in computer science at the University of Virginia (opens new window), where I was a member of the ILP Lab (opens new window) working with Prof. Yangfeng Ji (opens new window).
