Here is my C.V.

Research Interests

My research interests lie in Machine Learning, especially on multi-task, transfer learning problems. I investigate these machine learning techniques on natural language applications with my advisor Jaime Carbonell.
The goal of my research is injecting knowledge/constraints into neural models, primarily for natural language processing (NLP) tasks. While Machine Learning is a great framework to learn a black box that best represents given training set, sometimes the model fails to learn simple rules that is necessary for safety or logical reasoning. However, if we step back and think, not all the aspects of the model need to be learned from the data itself as some rules or constraints are just available to us, including simple user preference. In this line of thought, I am interested in ‘how' current machine learning framework can incorporate knowledge that is in the form of simple rules or constraints.
