About Me

Hi there, this is Ji Xin. I know the pronunciation is a bit difficult for English speakers so please call me Jayden.

I am currently a Ph.D. student in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo, Canada. My advisors are Professors Jimmy Lin and Yaoliang Yu.

I completed my undergrad at Tsinghua University, China in 2018. Back then, my research focused on information extraction, especially entity type classification. My advisor was Professor Zhiyuan Liu.
