I am a Research scientist at Apple MLR, primarily working on Natural language processing and Machine Learning. Before joining Apple, I have been at Meta AI and Microsoft Research, working on text generation and pre-training.

I received Ph.D. degree and M.S. degree from Duke University. Before that, I received B.Sc. degree in Physics from Nanjing University, Kuang Yaming Honors school (DII), in 2011.

I have served as an Area Chair (or SPC) for NeurIPS, ACL, EMNLP and AAAI. I have served as one of the organization committee members in ACL (2020). I received NeurIPS top reviewer awards (2019).

Please send me an email with your latest CV if you are a senior PhD student working on NLG and looking for an internship

My recent research focuses on below topics:

  • Efficient sequence models.

  • Memory-augmented models.

  • Controllable text geneneration.

  • Safe & Responsible NLP.

  • Non-autoregressive generation.

  • Multimodal pretraining.
