Research Status

My research interest includes natural language processing, information diversity and summarization, sentiment analysis, opinion mining, social data mining, and machine learning theories and applications. My publications appear in top-ranking conferences such as ACL(2014/2012/2010/2009), AAAI (2012/2010), IJCAI, COLING, CIKM (2013/2012), ICDM (2011/2009/2008), NAACL, and PAKDD, and journals such as Knowledge and Information System, Genome Biology, Bioinformatics, BMC Bioinformatics, and JAMIA. I serve as organizer or PC member for ACL, EACL, COLING, EMNLP (area chair), NAACL, CIKM, ICDM, SDM, etc., and associate editors of BMC bioinformatics, and reviewers for Bioinformatics, Knowledge-based Systems, TALIP, TKDE, etc.

During the past years, I have been participating in TREC/TAC Competitions (organized by NIST of USA), which are standard evaluation conferences on information retrieval and information processing. In particular, we have achieved leading results on tasks of document summarization, text entailment, and knowledge linking. I had proposed a new approach to summarizing multiple documents, which is based on information distance theory. Several document summarization algorithms I developed have been licensed to commercial use. Working on sentiment analysis and opinion mining for several years, I proposed novel methods and algorithms for opinion ranking, opinion extraction and classification, and multi-label classification.I developed a Chinese review mining system named cReviewMiner, which presents deep review mining results for digital products.

I was a visiting research fellow in University of Hamburg, Germany in 2006. In 2010, I was invited to conduct joint research at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in the United States from January to July. I was a visiting professor for social data mining in National University of Singapore in Feb, 2014.
