Fanghua Ye 叶方华

Welcome 👋

I am a second-year PhD student in Computer Science at Univeristy College London (UCL). I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Emine Yilmaz.

My research interests lie in conversational AI, neural semantic parsing, information retrieval, social network analysis, and machine learning. Currently, I am focused on task-oriented dialogue systems and conversational question answering. I also have a strong passion in graph convolutional networks.
