I am Rui Meng (孟睿), a Ph.D. candidate at School of Computing and Information, University of Pittsburgh. I am advised by Prof. Daqing He and Prof. Peter Brusilovsky.

Currently, my research focuses on Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. Especially I am interested in Representation Learning and Language Grounding. Right now I am working on projects about Keyphrase Generation and Text Summarization.

I was an intern at Google Research (2018, 2020), Salesforce Research (2019) and Yahoo! Research (2017).

Prior to my PhD life at Pitt, I received my bachelor and master degree at Wuhan University, and I was advised by Prof. Wei Lu.
