Students and Visitors

My current focus is NLP applications (e.g., word sequence -> protein sequence, text generation) and ML applications (e.g., graph representation learning, zero-shot learning) in biomedicine
I am looking for PhD students starting from Fall 2021.
I am happy to host (remote) undergradaute / graduate visitors in Summer 2021.
If you want to work with me, please feel free to send me an email with your CV.
