Many of us have been missing the social nature of in-person conferences and being able to meet new people in the #NLProc research community. To remedy this, Enrico, Sarah, Peng, and Danqi, as NAACL Publicity Chairs, are starting a new series called #PeopleOfNLProc on the NAACL social media channels and the official conference blog (https://2021.naacl.org/blog)!
For the next months leading up to the NAACL 2021 conference, we will be featuring members of the NLP research community via TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE. Anyone is welcome to participate – fill out the Google form here: https://forms.gle/GqdiRQFTw4LaJYmG8
Our new #PeopleofNLProc researcher is Wei Coco Xu (@cocoweixu).
BIO: Assistant Professor in CS at Georgia Tech, looking to hire more PhD students and solve some interesting/hard NLP problems.
