Longyue Wang

ADAPT Centre, Dublin City University

I have received my B. Sc. degree in 2011, and M. Sc. degree in 2014. I am now a 3rd-year PhD student at Dublin City University. I have studied and practiced in a broad field of natural language processing including Chinese word segmentation, named entity, discourse parsing, grammatical error correction and machine translation. Currently, I am working on discouse neural machine translation including dialogue MT and document-level MT. I am also interested in low-resourced MT especially for Chinese-Portuguese.
