Research Interests

My current research focus is natural language processing and machine learning. In general, I am trying to develop novel structured learning theories and methods for solving large-scale natural language processing problems (i.e., how to make a machine to "understand" human language?). See my EMNLP 2016 tutorial about this topic.
