Hi! I'm a first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at University College London, affiliated with the Web Intelligence Group of the Centre for Artificial Intelligence. I am grateful to be advised by Prof. Emine Yilmaz and supported by a UKRI funded CDT in Foundational AI.

I aim to design systems that robustly and efficiently learn to understand human languages and web data to the end of advancing artificial intelligence web service and web information processing. My current research interests lie in natural language processing, information retrieval, machine learning, and data mining.

Feel free to reach me at yue [dot] feng [dot] 20 [at] ucl [dot] ac [dot] uk, or take my CV.
