Fei-Tzin Lee

What do I do?

I am generally interested in semantic representations. My current interests include how we can use explicit semantic representations at intermediate stages of a neural generation pipeline. In the past, I have worked on the Columbia SAFE Lab’s gang violence prevention project as well as on analyzing therapeutic conversation.
