Ching-Yun Chang

I am a PhD student working with Dr. Stephen Clark in the Natural Language and Information Processing Group at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. The thesis title is Transformations for Linguistic Steganography.

A web application demonstrating my PhD work can be found here.

My research interests span the area of applied research in Natural Language Processing (NLP), machine learning methods for NLP, lexical knowledge acquisition and large-scale semantic network construction.
