I am an undergraduate student at Fudan University, majoring in Data Science.

My research interest is computational cognitive science with a specific focus on computational psycholinguistics. I try to bridge the gap between the language processing of human(psycholinguistics) and machine(NLP). I study 1) if psycholinguistic paradigms(brain imaging, eye-tracking, complexity metrics, prime-target) could be applied to NLP and advance language technologies through improving performance and/or helping interpret neural NLP models; 2) if deep learning-driven NLP models could be utilized as computational cognitive modeling tools to predict psycholinguistic measurements. My current project focuses on syntax mainly, but I am widely interested in applying such methodology to other linguistic fields including semantics and pragmatics.

Currently, I am a research intern at University of Chicago working with Prof. Allyson Ettinger and Prof. Ming Xiang .

When I'm in Shanghai, I am supervised by Prof. Xing Tian and Dr. Linmin Zhang at New York University Shanghai in cognitive science field. In the computation field, I am under the supervision of Prof. Zhongyu Wei at Fudan University.
