Wei-Jen Ko

I am a fourth year computer science Ph.D. student at the University of Texas at Austin, advised by Professor Jessy Li and Professor Greg Durrett. My PhD research topics are about sentence specificity, neural dialog generation, and question answering. I received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University in 2016.
