I am a visiting lecturer (Macao Fellow) at Department of Computer and Information Science in the University of Macau. My research interest includes text summarization, natural language processing, and reinforcement learning.

I received my Ph.D. degree from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2020, supervised by Prof. Irwin King. In spring 2019, I worked with Prof. Lu Wang at Northeastern University as a visiting PhD student.
