Welcome to my homepage!

Hi, I am Yan Shao (Chinese: 邵研 Pinyin: Shào Yán). I obtained my doctoral degree in computational linguistics at Uppsala University, Sweden. Recently, I joined the Alibaba Group in Hangzhou, China.

My research interests include:

  • Deep Learning
  • Sequence processing
  • Automatic summarisation
  • Machine translation
  • Syntactic parsing
  • Cross-lingual information retrieval

I took part in teaching the following course:

I am eager to see the world. I spend a lot of time (and money :D) travelling in different places.

I am a big fan of music. Apart from meeting and drinking beers with my friends, I spend most of my leisure time to play guitar.

I am not a big fan of doing sports, but I force myself into the gym a couple of times every week just for a healthy life.

I used to be quite addicted to DOTA. Now I don’t play so much, but I still follow the updates and watch the professional events.
