Tianyu Gao 高天宇

I am a third-year PhD student at Princeton University, advised by Prof. Danqi Chen. I am also a proud member of the Princeton NLP group. Before Princeton, I received my bachelor's degree at Tsinghua University. During my time at Tsinghua, I was a member of THUNLP and was advised by Prof. Zhiyuan Liu.

My research interests lie within the intersection of natural language processing and machine learning. I am specifically interested in large language models, few-shot learning, and contrastive learning. I am also interested in NLP applications like question answering and information extraction.
