My vita.
My publications.

I am a Computer Science Ph.D. student at Blender Lab, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, advised by Prof. Heng Ji.

My research interests lie in Natural Language Processing, especially Information Extraction, Entity Linking, Entity Typing and Knowledge Base Population.

I received my B.S. in Computer Science and minor in Psychology from RPI.
