Hi, my name is Huihan Li. I’m a second-year M.S.E student studying Computer Science in Princeton University. I’m part of the Princeton Natural Language Processing Group, advised by Danqi Chen. I studied Computer Science and Cognitive & Linguistic Sciences at Wellesley College, working with Christine Bassem on human crowdsensing.
I am passionate about Natural Language Processing, Computational Linguistics, and everything about languages. In high school, I competed in International Linguistics Olympiad representing China.
Outside of research, I enjoy all kinds of sports, cooking/baking, and reading.
My research focuses on building agents that understand and use natural languages by learning from human behaviors. As of now, I am especially interested in question answering, instruction tuning, natural language understanding, text generation, etc.
Ongoing and finished projects include:
- Conversational Question Answering - re-evaluating the current evaluation protocol for Conversational Question Answering models
- Instruction Understanding - achieving task transfer by training Seq2Seq models to understand natural language instructions
