I am a Ph.D candidate at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Now I join the laboratory at The Center for Computational Language and EducAtion Research (CLEAR) with Professor James Martin and Martha Palmer. My research interests involve semantic parsing, semantic role labeling, and annotation tool design.
I was born in Taipei, Taiwan. I received my B.S. and M.S. Degree in Computer Science and Information Systems & Application in National Tsing Hua University in 2005 and 2007. In NTHU ISA, I joined Natural Language Processing Labortary and worked with Professor Jason S. Chang.
