I am a Ph.D. student at the Department of Computer Science and Technology, Tsinghua University. I am now working on human-computer interaction at Tsinghua's Pervasive Interaction Group led by with Professor Yuanchun Shi and Associate Researcher Chun Yu. My current research focuses on building interactive tools to facilitate second language writing and learning. By exploring, mining, and summarizing large-scale text or multimedia data collections, I want to create an interface between non-native speakers and refined language knowledge in big text data (as well as in humans themselves).

I received my B.E in Computer Science from Tsinghua University in 2013, where I joined the PI group since then.

ESL Writing Assistant

I have built and deployed ESLWriter, which enables non-native researchers to refer to for wording, phrasing, collocation, and etc., by querying against domain-specific corpora while writing their papers. All results are accompanied by example sentences from authentic papers from top conferences/journals in the targeted domain. Learn more at our [Guide].
