Wei-Jen Ko

I am a fifth year computer science PhD candidate at the University of Texas at Austin working on natural language processing. I am advised by professor Jessy Li and professor Greg Durrett. My research topics during PhD include sentence specificity, dialog generation, machine translation, and question answering. I received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University in 2016.
