About Me

I am a first-year Ph.D. student at Illinois Institute of Technology advised by Dr. Kai Shu. I obtained my M.S. degree in Computer Science from University of Oregon (advised by Dr. Thien Nguyen), and my B.S. degree in computer science from Purdue University working with Dr. Yung-Hsiang Lu.

My research focuses on developing trustworthy systems to retrieve, extract, and verify natural language information. I am motivated by detecting misinformation and its associated research goals, including: graph representation learning, knowledge extraction, explainable natural language processing, and learning from weak or distant supervision.
