Hi, I am Joe! I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Chicago under supervision of Prof. Chenhao Tan in CHAI lab. My current research focuses on decision-focused summarization which aims to collect valuable information from lengthy source documents to support human decision making.
I spent a wonderful year at University of Colorado Boulder before transferred to UChicago. Before joining CU, I was a research assistant in Natural Language Processing and Sentiment Analysis Lab (NLPSA) at Academia Sinica supervised by Dr. Lun-Wei Ku. My research at NLPSA included modeling language in discourse by deep learning model with applications among dialogue emotion recognition and visual storytelling. Prior to that, I got a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at National Taiwan University and did undergraduate research with Prof. Lin-shan Lee on utterance-level emotion recognition in speech.
