About

Yaqiang was a Visiting Professor of Tsinghua University and worked with Youyou Lu and Jiwu Shu from Sep. 2019 to Aug. 2020. He received his PhD degree in 2013 from College of Computer Science, Sichuan University and worked with Zhonghua Yu and Yiguang Liu. His MS and BS degree were obtained from Sichuan University in 2010 and CUIT in 2007, respectively. Now his research focuses on large-scale machine learning, data management, domain-specific knowledge graph engineering, and information extraction from informal text, such as medical records, micro-blogs, etc.
