I am a faculty member of the School of Computing and Information Systems
. My research explores two questions: What are the underlying principles of humans understanding conversation context as well as making proper responses, and how we can implement them on machine learning models? Research on this topic has to necessarily be at the intersection of Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing and Multimedia. In my lab, we are specifically interested in task-oriented dialogues, proactive conversational agents, and multimodal conversational search and recomendation as the application target. I received my Ph.D. from National University of Singapore, advised by Professor Tat-Seng Chua
I'm recruiting 0-2 new PhD students every year (apply to PhD
program and list me as a potential advisor). Our group also has multiple positions for summer interns and visiting research students. Please feel free to email me with your CV if you are interested.
