About

Hi~ I am Wangchunshu Zhou, an in-coming CS PhD student at Stanford. I received my master’s degree from the Sino-French Engineering School, Beihang University, advised by Professor Ke Xu. Before that, I received my Bachelor’s degree from the same institute. I interned at NLC Group @ Microsoft Research Asia, MILA and USC. where I was fortunate to work with Dr. Tao Ge, Prof. Jian Tang and Prof. Xiang Ren. Please check my CV for further information.

Research

My primary research goal is to apply Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing and develop Language Technology for All. To achievethis goal and make language technology accessible in most people’s lives, I identify two major research topics that I’m interested in: efficiency and trustworthiness of NLP models. Efficiency involves both the amount of computation and data required for (pre-)training and using NLP models. Trustworthiness involves the interpretability, fairness, and robustness with respect to adversarial attacks and out-of-distribution samples.

Specifically I am interested in the following research topics:
        Natural language generation, creative text generation, evaluation for NLG models.
        Commonsense reasoning and knowledge-based reasoning.
        Robust NLP models for OOD samples and reducing spurious dataset biases.
        Interpretability, explainability, biases, and fairness for NLP models.
        Green NLP, Low resource NLP, and Learning NLP models from high-level supervision
I am open to academic collaborations and please drop me an email if you are interested in collaborating with me.

Personal information

I am a big fan of Harry Potter, Real Madrid, and Cristiano Ronaldo. I enjoy reading books (especially sci-fictions) and playing games (including FIFA, League of Legends, etc.) in my free time.
