Yaxin Zhu

PhD student at CICS, UMass

Hi. I’m a second year master of computer science student at Rutgers. I’m fortunate to work with Prof. Gerard de Melo and Prof. Yongfeng Zhang conducting research related to natural language processing. Before Rutgers, I spent my undergraduate study at Nankai University.

I’ll join UMass as a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Hamed Zamani starting from fall 2021.

My research interests lie broadly in natural language processing. Currently I focus on graph representation learning, knowledge graph reasoning, cross-lingual classification, etc.
