About Me

Hi, my name’s Liang Shuailong. I’m a PhD student in Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), Singapore. I plan to graduate in Spring 2020. I am currently looking for internship opportunities to work on common sense related NLP research.

I do research on deep learning and natural language processing (NLP), and enjoy coding. Specifically, my research areas include fundamental NLP research, such as sequence labelling, as well as its applications in social science etc. Now I am very interested in how to integrate commonsense knowledge and knowledge graph information into NLP tasks such as Machine Reading Comprehension and Question Answering.

I am most skilled in: Deep Learning and Natural Language Processing. My CV can be downloaded here.
