Short Bio [Experiences] [Selected Publication] [Full CV Download]

I am a tenure-track researcher at NICT, working with Dr. Masao Utiyama and Dr. Eiichiro Sumita. Before that, I obtained my Ph.D. degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2016, supervised by Prof. Bao-Liang Lu and Prof. Hai Zhao. I was also a joint Ph.D. student (Le programme Cai Yuanpei from 2013 to 2015) in CNRS-University Lyon1, supervised by Prof. Sabine Ploux. I obtained my master and bachelor degree from University of Chinese Academy of Sciences and Harbin Institute of Technology in 2012 and 2009, respectively.

My research focuses on machine translation, a classic task in NLP (or even in AI). I (as the first or the corresponding authors) have published more than 20 MT papers in top-tier NLP conferences and journals, such as ACL, EMNLP, AAAI, IJCAI, TASLP, etc. I have also won the first places in the unsupervised Czech<->German task in WMT-2019, the supervised Finnish/Estonian<->English tasks in WMT-2018, and the first place in the DM sub-task and the 2nd overall in the CoNLL-2019 shared tasks. I servered as the area co-chairs of CCL-2018/2019 and the organization co-chairs of PACLIC-29 and YCCL-2012.
