I am a 2nd-year PhD student in NLP at the Language Technology Lab, University of Cambridge, supervised by Professor Nigel Collier. I recently am working on three things:
   1. multi-modality: connecting language with knowledge and perception;
   2. self-supervision: specialising language models without (human) labels;
   3. interpretability: what’s encoded/missing in (pre-)trained model weights?
I am a member of Clare Hall and a Trust Scholar funded by Grace & Thomas C.H. Chan Cambridge Scholarship. Besides Cambridge, I also spend(t) time doing research at Amazon, EPFL, and Waterloo.
