  • 10/2018: Tor, Csaba and I have a new paper on Online Learning to Rank with Features, which extends the existing setting for general click models to deal with a large number of items and the expected reward is a linear function on item feature vectors. We bring up a general click model with only a few assumptions and design a simple but efficient algorithm.
  • 2017.6.5 - 2017.11.10: I am a research intern at Adobe Research working together with Branislav Kveton on the problem of offline evaluation. The work is accepted at KDD 2018.
