  • Thesis abstract:
      • My thesis research is on Data-Driven Text Structure Extraction. I develope methods that are domain-independent, language-independent, distantly-supervised and scalable to mine various structures (phrases, entities, relations) from massive text data. This yields schema-rich databases/information networks, from which human can derive knowledge by applying different data mining functions (ranking, link prediction, classification, clustering).
