I am a PhD candidate in the School of Computer Science, UCD, under the supervision of Dr. David Lillis. My PhD research focuses on NLP for emergency response. In my spare time, I like coding stuff that I feel hard to get from the internet. Currently, I am a fan of my-field related big open source companies like AI2 and HuggingFace. There’s really much to learn from them! In addition, my interests include cooking, reading and non-fictional or fictional writing. More about me go to my résumé.

For anyone interested, below are recommended tools for mantaining a blog site. These are just so far personally thinking good choices. Let me know if you have better alternatives.
- What framework do you use for this blog site?
I use jekyll. A quick start guide for building a Jekyll blog can be found here jekyll-now. Jekyll also provides easy ways for tracking the data flow of the site via Google Analytics and highlighting programming codes (with one or several lines of codes). If I feel I need to use more front-end GUI components in my blogs, I can easily intergrate the bootstrap package with the site as well.
- What drawing tool you use for blogging?
- What tool do you use for equation annotation?
- What do you do if want to cite graphs or tables from papers in the literature?
I usually first crop the table/graph portions from the papers with some pdf tools such as pdfresizer. With the cropped pdf portions, I then convert them to svgs files after adding references so that I can use them as tensor images in my blogs. There are many online pdf2svg convertors such as ZAMZAR. I know this sounds a bit troublesome, so I am looking for better ways for citing tensor images from pdf files.
