Rued Langgaards Vej 7, 2300,
Hello there! My name is Mike Zhang. I’m a third-year PhD Student at the IT University of Copenhagen (ITU) under supervision of Prof. Barbara Plank and dr. Rob van der Goot. I am part of the NLPnorth research unit at the IT University of Copenhagen and also affiliated with the MaiNLP Lab at CIS (Center for Information and Language Processing) at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (LMU).
My main focus is working on automated high-quality Information Extraction from unstructured text with real-life use cases that have societal impact. In my case, I am working on Skill Extraction for Job Market Understanding, where I’m aiming to get a bigger picture of the labour market to aid in, e.g., re-skilling the workforce. My other interests include Active Learning, Domain Adaptation, Retrieval Augmentation.
