Personal profile


Before I became a Lecturer in The University of Manchester, I was a Senior Researcher at Department of Computer Science, University of Oxford, worked very shortly as a PostDoctoral Researcher in Heidelberg University. I got my Ph.D and Bachelor Degree both in Computer Science and Technology in Zhejiang University. Click here to learn me more.

Research interests

I'm interested in a few knowledge graph related research topics, mainly inlcuding

  • Knowledge Graph Construction: the embedding, alignment, completion, population, quality assurance of knowledge graphs (OWL ontologies).
  • Semantic Table Understanding with knowledge graphs and machine learning.
  • Language Model: exploring language models for constructing knowledge graphs, and supporting semantic embedding and reasoning.
  • Machine Learning: knowledge-aware zero-shot and transfer learning, inductive knowledge graph completion, knowledge-augmented explanation.


I am recruiting PhD students. All the knowledge graph related topics are very welcomed. Please email your CV to me or directly apply through project 1 and project 2


I will teach "Querying Data on the Web (COMP62421)" in The University of Manchester from 2023 - 2024.
