Hi, I am Jiacheng Xu (徐嘉诚 in Chinese), a rising fifth-year Ph.D. student in the
Department of Computer Science at the University of
My adviser is Prof. Greg Durrett.
My research interest focuses on Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning.
More specifically, I work on text summarization and generation.
Before I came to UT Austin, I obtained my bachelor degree from
University in 2017.
From 2015 to 2017, I was a member of FudanNLP, advised by Prof.
Xipeng Qiu. Check out the amazing Text
Analysis, Understanding and Reasoning Group
(TAUR) and the Machine
Learning Group at UT Austin.
I am looking for full-time opportunity starting summer/fall 2022. My CV is here.
