Puxuan Yu

Hi there. I am a third-year MS/Ph.D. student from the CIIR and CICS at UMass Amherst. My advisor is Prof. James Allan. I obtained my bachelor's degree from the School of Computer Science at Wuhan University in 2018.

My research interests lay in the intersection of information retrieval, machine learning and natural language processing. More specifically, I work on representations in various IR tasks, such as entity retrieval, (cross-lingual) ad-hoc retrieval, product search, and explanation of SERPs.
