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, who leads the Web Intelligence group.

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