Yichen Jiang (姜翌辰)

I'm a 2nd-year PhD student (7th-year Tar Heel) at Department of Computer Science at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I have spent the last 5 years pursuing my bachelor and master degree. I am advised by Prof. Mohit Bansal and work in UNC-NLP Research Group. My research focuses on Natural Language Processing and structured Deep Learning. In general, I build intuitive and interpretable Neural Network models to tackle some of the most challenging Natural Language Generation (NLG) (e.g., text summarization), and Natural Language Understanding (NLU) (e.g., machine reading-comprehension).

I'm interested in natural language processing, computer vision, multi-modal system, machine learning, statistics, optimization. My research interest centers on building interpretable neural networks that achieves state-of-the-art performace in tasks related to human language.
