Hong Wang

I am a third-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UCSB. I am advised by Prof. Xifeng Yan. Prior to UCSB, I received my bachelor degree from Nanjing University as a member of LAMDA Group. Currently, I am interested in Natural Language Processing, Reinforcement Learning and Deep Learning.
