My vita.
My publications.

I am a second-year 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 Entity Linking and Entity Typing.

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