I am a Professor in Wangxuan Institute of Computer Technology (WICT), Peking University (PKU), China. I received B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from Department of Computer Science and Technology of PKU in 1991, 1994 and 2000 respectively. 

Research Biography

My major research interests include Natural Language Processing, Semantic Data Management and Knowledge-based Intelligent System. Recently, I am interested in several research topics including Information Extraction, Knowledge Graph, Question Answering & Reading Comprehension, Dialogue System and Knowledge-based Intelligence applications. 

As a distinguished member of China Computer Federation (CCF), I was the secretary-general of CCF TCCI (Technical Committee on Chinese Information Technology, renamed as CCF TCNLP (Technical Committe on Natural Language Processing) in 2020, from 2010 to 2019. I’m the member of CCF Advisory Committee of Big Data and member of CCF Network and Data Communications, as well as a senior member of CIPS Social Media Processing Committee.

In recent years, while undertaking 17 national and 8 provincial/ministerial scientific research projects (include National Natural Science Foundation of China, National Key Development Project, etc.), I am/was the PI in 16 projects, including 8 national research projects.

Having published 200+ referred papers (more than 100 of them are top ranked by CCF, such as ACL, AAAI, IJCAI, KDD, WWW, SIGMOD, VLDB; AI, TODS, VLDB Journal, TKDE etc.), obtained 23 patents, I won 7 official awards from national and provincial/ministerial bureaus of China, including National Awards of Scientific and Technological Process, Second Prize (The first contributor).

I also won China Youth Science and Technology Award (2007) and Special Award of Technological Innovation titled "Honor of Science and Technology" by Beijing Municipal Government (2007).
