Hi, human / crawler!
I am Yuning Mao , a third-year Ph.D student in the Data Mining Group, Computer Science Department, University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign (UIUC). My advisor is Jiawei Han. I graduated from the IEEE Honored Class, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU).
My research lies in the understanding, organizing, and mining of text data via data mining, natural language processing, and deep (reinforcement) learning techniques. My current interests include taxonomy construction, hierarchical classification, and text summarization.
