Thanks for stopping by!

I'm a first-year PhD student in Computer Science at Stanford University, working with Percy Liang, Chris Manning and Jure Leskovec. My research interests are in natural language processing and machine learning, in particular, representation learning for structured data, reasoning, and computation.

Previously, I worked with Dragomir Radev (LILY lab) and John Lafferty at Yale University.

My recent projects include text summarization (YZM+'17; YKZ+'19), semantic parsing (YZY+'18; YZE+'19), understanding programs and mathematics (YL'19; YL'20), and robustness of neural nets (YKR'18). I also co-organized Scientific Document Summarization workshop from SIGIR 2018 — this year it takes place as Scholarly Document Processing workshop @EMNLP 2020.
