Hi! I am Yuan He, a second-year PhD candidate in Computer Science, supervised by Professor Ian Horrocks and Professor Bernardo Cuenca Grau at the University of Oxford. My primary research focus is to address Ontology Curation and Embeddings using Natural Language Processing techniques, especially with the pre-trained language models.

I am developing and maintaining a Python package, DeepOnto, which is associated with all my PhD works.
