About Me

I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at University of California, Santa Barbara. I am advised by Professor William Y. Wang and affiliated with the UCSB NLP Group. My research interests lie on the intersection of natural language processing, reinforcement learning and deep learning. Before coming to UCSB, I received my B.Sc. from Tsinghua University.

Fusing Knowledge Graphs with Text

Textual information is considered as an important supplement to knowledge representation learning (KRL). There are two main challenges for previous fusion methods: (1) How to take full advantages of the sequential context of entities in plain text. (2) How to dynamically select informative sentences of the corresponding entities. We propose the Sequential Text-embodied KRL to build knowledge representations with the help of multiple sentences.
