Before Boulder, I was a postdoctoral researcher at University of Washington, working with Noah Smith for a year. Prior to that, I spent wonderful years at Ithaca working with Lillian Lee and many others, and obtained a PhD degree in Computer Science at Cornell University. Originally, I am from Jingdezhen, China and lived in Beijing for four years while studying Computer Science and Economics at Tsinghua University.

You are here probably because you are interested in learning about life trajectories. I have a paper on that subject, and the main takeaway is "People, unlike trees, thrive by relocation".
