Hi! I am Yanhong Li, a third-year undergraduate at the University of Chicago, majoring in Math. I am broadly interested in natural language processing and multimodal learning. My current projects are centered around retrieval-augmented language models and sign language translation, and I'm still in the process of exploring.​

I am extremely grateful to work with Prof. David McAllester, Prof. Karen Livescu, Prof. Allyson Ettinger, Prof. Jiawei Zhou, Prof. Greg Shakhnarovich, and Prof. Kartik Goyal at TTIC/UChicago. I couldn’t appreciate their invaluable insights and support more!​

Also, I would like to say a huge thank you to all my wonderful mentors/collaborators: David Yunis @TTIC, Chenghao Yang @UChicago, Marcelo Sandoval-Castañeda @TTIC. Check out their interesting work!​!


I always love to chat about research:
