About Me

This is Shufan and I am a first year computer science MS/PhD student at UMass Amherst. My research interests lie mostly in the area of natural language processing and machine learning. My advisors is Professor Mohit Iyyer. 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. In my undergrade years, I started doing research in mathematics and computer science. I received much guidance and support from working with Professor Per Sebastian Skardal, John Georges, David Mauro, Qiang Liu, and Anna Rumshisky. Before that I graduated from Raffles Institution in Singapore.
