Welcome! I am a fourth-year PhD student at UC San Diego advised by Prof. Jingbo Shang. I spent wonderful time doing research at Google Cloud AI, Google Research, Adobe Research, and Microsoft Research Asia. I received my B.S. in Computer Science from Peking University in 2020, where I was advised by Prof. Xiaojun Wan.

My research focuses on applying NLP to real-world problems. I am particularly interested in building systems that can process and understand a wide range of data, including tabular data, visually-rich documents, web contents, etc. My goal is to bridge the gap between vast knowledge sources and practical NLP applications.
