I am currently a second-year PhD student at the Center for Information and Language Processing (CIS) of University of Munich (LMU Munich), München, under Prof. Dr. Hinrich Schütze’s supervision, focusing on natural language processing (NLP) and computational linguistics (CL).

Before pursuing my PhD degree, I obtained my master’s degree in Data Engineering and Analytics at Technical University of Munich (TUM), München, and my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Technology at Southwest University (SWU), Chongqing.
