Welcome to my homepage!

Hi, there! Here is Ning Dai. I’m now a first-year PhD student in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University (advised by Prof. Liang Huang).

Previously, I was an undergraduate research assistant at FudanNLP Group (advised by Prof. Xipeng Qiu).

Research Interests

Generally, I’m doing research on Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. So far, I have explored a lot of topics in NLP and ML, such as Reinforcement Learning, Dependency Parsing, Text Generation and Self-supervised Representation Learning, etc. Specifically, here are the topics that I’m recently interested in:


Style Transformer: Unpaired Text Style Transfer without Disentangled Latent Representation (ACL 2019) [paper] [code]

Ning Dai, Jianze Liang, Xipeng Qiu, Xuanjing Huang

Pre-trained Models for Natural Language Processing: A Survey [paper]

Xipeng Qiu, Tianxiang Sun, Yige Xu, Yunfan Shao, Ning Dai, Xuanjing Huang
