Hi there, I’m Irene Li (李紫辉) ! Welcome to my blog! 🙂
I want to share my learning journals, notes and programming exercises with you. The topics include data science, statistics, machine learning, deep learning, AI applications, etc.
I am now an Assistant Professor at the Information Technology Center, University of Tokyo. Please contact me via ireneli[at]ds.itc.u-tokyo.ac.jp or irene.li[at]aya.yale.edu. I am starting my own Li-Lab, working in AI, ML, and NLP. I am actively looking for research assistants to join our lab for collaboration. Please drop me an email for potential research projects.
Before moving to Japan, I was working in the LILY lab at Yale University. My PhD advisor is Prof. Dragomir Radev. On March 2022, I passed my PhD Defense on the topic of “Neural Graph Transfer Learning in Natural Language Processing Tasks”! 🎉
