About Me

I am currently a research staff member in IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, New York, USA. I joined IBM Research in 2015 and worked in Tokyo Lab for one year and a half. In 2016 I moved to the US.

Prior to IBM, I obtained my PhD degree from the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, the University of Tokyo, Japan, under the supervision of Prof. Hiroshi Nakagawa. I received my M.S. from Peking University (where I was supervised by Prof. Xiaojun Wan) and my B.E. from Tsinghua University, China.

My research interests have spanned a number of different topics in machine learning and natural language processing (NLP) during my study and career, including document summarization, bilingual text mining, Bayesian nonparametrics, deep learning. Currently my research is mainly focused on graph neural networks, and I am also interested in other deep learning techniques in healthcare and NLP areas.
