I am a 2nd year Ph.D. student in Computational Linguistics at The University of Texas at Austin, where I’m blessed to be advised by Professor Junyi Jessy Li. My research interest is in Natural Language Processing as well as Computational Linguistics, with a focus on pragmatics and discourse. I am part of the UT Austin NLP community as well as the Associated Students of Linguistics. Henry is my Starbucks name. My Chinese name is 詹弘立.

I received my B.A. in Linguistics as an outstanding graduate from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2021.
