I am Yuwei Wu(巫宇威), an undergraduate majoring in Computer Science at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I am a member of ACM Honors Class, Zhiyuan College, which is an elite CS program in SJTU for top 5% talented students.

My main research interests lie within deep learning for Natural Language Processing and Understanding, and I am particularly interested in Question Answering, Machine Reading Comprehension, and Dialog System.

I am planning to apply for CS Ph.D. or M.S. program in Fall 2019.
