Yufan Guo


I am a PhD student at DTAL doing computational linguistics/ natural language processing under the supervision of Dr Anna Korhonen. I am particularly interested in statistical NLP and applications of NLP in real-world tasks, e.g. identifying the information structure of scientific publications.
