Hao Ma

Senior Researcher & Manager


I am a Senior Researcher and Manager at the Internet Services Research Center (ISRC), Microsoft Research at Redmond, USA. My interests, in no particular order, include Natural Language Processing, Recommender Systems, Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, and Social Network Analysis.

Since joining Microsoft Research, I have worked on many interesting problems in both search and recommendation.  Most recently, I have been working on entity related research problems and applications. I designed the core algorithms that powered both Bing's and Microsoft's entity experience, including entity recommendation, attributes ranking, interpretation, exploration, carousel ranking, question and answering, etc. I graduated with a Ph.D. in Computer Science from The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
