Look into my CV (October 2021).
My LinkedIn for general trivia (and photo), it's also more colorful.
I am a Research Scientist at Rakuten Institute of Technology.
Previously, I was Data Science and Operations Research Advisor at FedEx Express, Research Scientist with Preferred.AI, a research group at School of Computing and Information Systems (Singapore Management University). My research advisor is Hady W. Lauw.
Research interests: text mining, natural language processing, machine learning, information extraction, graphical models, statistics, machine translation
It is always good to air our research to the interested parties, talks (with videos):
Attaining high standards of reproducibility, I try to publish all the research and project-related prototypes:
Looking for publications? Google Scholar | DBLP (I find it is better at assigning the dates)
I just leave them here, peer-reviewed:
