I am an Applied Scientist at Amazon, working in the Product Graph team on Information Extraction, Text Mining, and Product Categorization/Taxonomy Enrichments with special foci on a Low Resource, Open-World setting. I finished my PhD at University of Illinois at Chicago, advised by Philip S. Yu. My research interests lie in the fields of data mining and natural language processing. In particular, I am interested in text mining and mining structured information from heterogeneous information sources.
