Biography

I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Computational Science and Engineering at Georgia Tech, also affiliated with the Machine Learning Center at Georgia Tech. Before joining Georgia Tech, I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from UIUC, where I worked with Jiawei Han. My research focuses on machine learning for unstructured text data and its applications, with emphasis on improving label efficiency and robustness of learning algorithms. My research has been honored by several awards, including the ACM SIGKDD Dissertation Award Runner-up (2019), the ECML/PKDD Best Student Paper Runner-up Award (2015) and the Chiang Chen Overseas Graduate Fellowship (2013).

Research

My group and I work on machine learning for unstructured text data and its applications. We aim to learn knowledge from unstructured text data for intelligent task support and decision making, while improving label efficiency and robustness of learning algorithms in this process. Our work covers a wide range of problems in related areas, including un-/weakly-supervised learning (ICML'19, Thesis), uncertainty quantification (IMWUT'18), sequential models (KDD'19, ICDE'19), text classification (AAAI'19, CIKM'18), event detection (KDD'17, CIKM'18), taxonomy construction (KDD'18), and multi-modal analysis of text and spatiotemporal data (WWW'17, KDD'16).
