About Me

Hi, there! My name is Mu Yang. I obtained my M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering at University of Southern California (USC). Currently I am working as a research assistant at Plus Lab at USC Information Scienceses Institute (ISI), fortunate to be supervised by Prof. Nanyun (Violet) Peng.

My research interests lie in Natural Language Understanding and Information Extraction, specifically Event Temporal Relation Extraction and Biomedical Event Extraction. Previously I also work on Spoken Language Understanding and Speech Synthesis, collaborating with Prof. Panayiotis Georgiou and folks from SCUBA Lab at USC.

I am now applying to PhD starting from Fall 2020.

I love music! I play guitar (a lot), bass (a little), drum (a little) and violin (>10 years back). I play and sing in a few (unprofessional) bands. We covered songs from our favorite artists. Check out some of our videos!
