Yi Zhu

I am a final year PhD student in Computation, Cognition and Language at the University of Cambridge. I am a member of the Language Technology Lab (LTL), working on the LEXICAL project. My supervisor is Professor Anna Korhonen, and I also work closely with my advisors Professor Ehsan Shareghi and Dr. Ivan Vulić. I am interested in the intersections between natural language processing and machine learning.

Before coming to Cambridge, I was a master student at the University of Washington advised by Professor Noah Smith. Prior to that, I received my bachelor degree from Tsinghua University supervised by Professor Yang Liu.
