Jianing “Jed” Yang

[CV] [LinkedIn] [Google Scholar] [Email]

Hello! This is Jianing “Jed” Yang (杨佳宁). I am a M.S. student in Machine Learning at Carnegie Mellon University. I received my B.S. in Computer Science from Georgia Tech.

I am lucky to be advised by Prof. Louis-Philippe Morency and Prof. Matt Gormley at CMU. My research interest lies in Dataset Bias Analysis, Multimodal NLP, and Machine Learning in general!

Before I delved fully into research, I had been a Software Development Engineer at Amazon Web Services , intern and full-time.

Outside of work, I love to ski/cook/bake/photograph.


(Nov. 2020) I’m attending EMNLP 2020 virtually. Happy to chat there!

(July 2020) I’m attending ACL 2020 virtually. Check out our video presentation on QA bias analysis!
