About Me

Welcome to my page! At present, I am a passionate researcher at Microsoft Azure AI. My primary role involves leveraging text summarization techniques for product enhancement. My journey to this position started when I earned my Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia in April 2023. I was privileged to have been advised by Prof. Giuseppe Carenini during this period.

Before diving into my doctoral studies, I had the opportunity to complete my Master’s degree at UBC as well. Going further back, I acquired my Bachelor’s degree from the esteemed University of Toronto.

Previously, I invested substantial time and effort into exploring text summarization and discourse parsing, building a wealth of knowledge in these areas. Recently, my curiosity has recently been drawn towards the captivating realm of general text generation and large language models, with a specific interest in their cognitive aspects. In particular, I’m interested in exploring how large language models (LLMs) perform in complex games that involve deception and reverse logic.

Outside of work, I like traveling, kpop dancing, and a diving into movies and shows. I also have a passion for board games, especially the ‘murder’ mystery games.
