I am Zhifeng Hu (胡志峰), or you can call me Jeffery which sounds very similar to my Chinese name.
I’m in my third year of studies towards a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at Fudan University. Currently I am visiting USC/ISI as a summer intern working on text generation with Nanyun Peng. I’ve been previously studied as an exchange student at the University of Edinburgh, doing research in natural language processing under the supervision of Shay Cohen and Ivan Titov.
I am interested in the application of machine learning in natural language processing, more specifically, designing machine learning algorithms for discrete structures that help with the understanding of natual language. I also find my motivation in making something to help people work and live better with computers.
I was once a player in algorithm competition
