I am a Ph.D. student in the School of Computing at the University of Utah, advised by Prof. Vivek Srikumar in the Natural Language Processing Group. My reseach interests centered around natural language processing and machine learning, such as Abstract Meaning Presentation semantic parsing, language generation, structural predication, and I also interested in deep learning on NLP, and other neural networks topics
