My name is Chen Qu. I am a Software Engineer at Google. Before joining Google, I was a PhD student advised by Prof. W. Bruce Croft at the Center for Intelligent Information Retrieval (CIIR), College of Information and Computer Sciences, University of Massachusetts Amherst. I focus on conversational search, Information Retrieval, and Natural Language Processing.

I will no longer have access to my email address after graduation. Use the email on the left instead.
