I joined Facebook Conversational AI team as a research scientist in September 2018, where I work on natural language generation and dialog. Before that, I was a visiting researcher at Stanford University. I obtained my CS PhD from University of Maryland College Park in 2018, and a bachelor’s degree from Zhejiang University in 2013.

During my PhD, I had some research internship experiences at Comcast AI Research, Google and Microsoft. At Comcast, I helped build their XFINITY voice search system with neural networks, which helped win the 69th Emmy Award (2017) for the technical contribution in advancing television technologies.
