At Clear Water Bay, 2023.
jchengajnull@nullcse.ust.hk

I am a graduate student at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) advised by professor Yangqiu Song, and a research intern at Amazon Web Services AI Lab with professor Zheng Zhang. Prior to my postgraduate studies, I received my Bachelor's degree in Data Science from Fudan University.

My research interests are in Natural Language Processing, and I am particularly interested in knowledge grounding and analogical reasoning.

News

🚀 Our recent work on story analogies has been accepted to EMNLP-2023 main conference! I will be attending the conference in person. Please feel free to reach out to me! 😊
