Portrait of Sheng Zhang

Sheng Zhang

Senior Researcher


I am a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research, exploring opportunities in the emerging area of “Curation-as-a-Service” (CaaS), which, by extracting valuable structured information from text, can empower a broad range of biomedical and healthcare practitioners.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Center for Language and Speech Processing (CLSP) at Johns Hopkins University, where 1) I developed the state-of-the-art models of semantic parsing and information extraction, which have the potential to facilitate semantic analysis and transform human-machine interaction; 2) I designed the framework for automated benchmark creation, which drives performance improvements across a range of natural language understanding tasks.
