Short Bio

My name is Fengyu Deng. I am a senior undergradute at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), Shanghai, China, majoring in Electronic Engineering.

At SJTU, I attended Intelligent Internet of Things (IIoT) as an undergraduate research assistant since 2016 spring, under the supervision of Prof. Xinbing Wang. I participate in several projects including both engineering and theory about Data Mining and Networks.

This summer, I worked as a research intern in the Natural Language Processing lab at University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), under the supervision of Prof. William Wang. We focused on solving temporal QA reasoning problems. Now, we are still working remotely.

Research Interests

My research focuses on machine learning and its applications (e.g. Data Mining, Natural Language Processing, Information Retrieval). Recently, I am interested in designing deep reinforcement learning framework for traditional NLP problems. I am also interested in various aspects of temporal reasoning and evolving process.
