About Me

This is Shufan and I am a fourth year computer science MS/PhD student at UMass Amherst. My research interests lie mostly in the area of natural language processing and machine learning. I am advised by Professor Mohit Iyyer, in the UMass NLP Lab. Throughout my journey in research, I am also fortunate enough to collaborate with the awesome Dan Sheldon and Nanyun Peng. Previously I completed my bachelor degree from Trinity College in Connecticut.
