Biography

Lu Chen joined the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) as an assistant research professor in October 2020. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in June 2020 and his doctoral thesis was awarded as SJTU Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation. His research interests include dialogue systems, question answering, and natural language processing. The goal of his research is to build evolvable and universal conversational agents, which can converse with humans among many domains and improve their performance with various signals.
