Hello and welcome! My name is Lifeng Jin. I am a PhD student in Linguistics at the Ohio State University. Prof. William Schuler is my advisor. I am fascinated by how language learning happens and how we can model such learning with computational tools new and old.
My main interests include grammar induction, human sentence processing and sentence classification and generation. I have been using Bayesian models to model grammar acquisition, and found out that depth-bounding for grammar induction is very effective in bounding the search space. I have also been using CNNs to do duplicate question identification, especially under low resource conditions, for health education purposes. I am also interested in human sentence processing, and am exploring ways that modern computational tools can aid us shedding more light on this issue.
