Q: Tell me something about yourself.

A: My name is Tian Kang 😴.

I'm a Ph.D. student in department of Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University in the City of New York. I'm passionate about Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Natural Language Understanding (NLU) of biomedical text. My doctoral dissertation -- "Neural-Symbolic Approaches for Delivering Medical Evidence from Free-text Literature to Evidence-Based Practice", is focused on developing novel language technologies to help doctors comprehend clinical research literature and facilitate the practice of Evidence-based Medicine at the point of care.

During my free time, I love photography 📸 (check out my albums), and watching Ricky Rubio ⛹'s games and Gilmore Girls!
