About Me

I am a 4th year PhD student working in DLRL. Currently, I am managing our 20 nodes Hadoop Cluster, which is a distributed framework/environment for CS4624, CS4984, CS5984, CS5604 and CS6604 at VT. My research mainly focuses on Information Retrieval (IR), Tweet Analysis and Text Summarization. Recently, I am working on event-related document retrieval, user classification on Twitter, and abstractive multi-document summarization (AMDS). When I have free time, I like playing pool and table tennis, and try my best to become a photographer.
