Hi~ I am Yusen Zhang, a first-year CS PhD student at Penn State University, advised by Dr. Rui Zhang. I received my master’s degree from Emory University, advised by Dr. Jinho D. Choi. Before that, I received my bachelor’s degree from Beijing Institute of Technology. When I was in Beijing, I interned at Big Data Mining Group, Microsoft Research Asia where I started my research on NLP.


My research interests lie in applying Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing, focusing on Natural Language Generation. Specifically I am interested in the following research topics:

        Interactive, high-fidelity Semantic Parsing.
        Long document and dialogue text summarization.
        Language Generation Evaluation.

I am open to academic collaborations and please drop me an email if you are interested in collaborating with me.
