Zhengbao Jiang (江政宝)

I am a Ph.D. student at CMU LTI. I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Graham Neubig. I focus on Natural Language Processing, Information Retrieval, and Machine Learning.

I obtained my master (2018) and bachelor (2015) degree from Renmin University of China, where I worked with Prof. Zhicheng Dou and Ji-Rong Wen on various IR/NLP problems.
