I'm a second year PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park. I work in the Computational Linguistics and Information Processing lab with my advisor Hal Daumé III. I'm interested in machine learning and its application in natural language processing (NLP). Currently, I'm working on fast inference for complex structured prediction problems in NLP.

Before joining UMD, I received my BEng in Electronic and Information Engineering and a minor in Applied Mathematics at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. In my final year, I worked with Wan-Chi Siu on image super-resolution. I also spent one semester at the University of Waterloo as an exchange student. During that time, I worked with Ali Ghodsi on rare class classification.
