I am a PhD candidate, supervised by Prof. Xu Sun, at MOE Key Laboratory of Computational Linguistics, School of Electronics Engineering and Computer Science, Peking University. I received the degree of Bachelor of College of Information Engineering from Northwest A&F University in 2015. I have great interests in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. Currently, my research areas include Text Generation and Style Transfer.
