Boshi Wang (汪博石)

PhD student at The Ohio State University


I'm passionate about language. Currently I'm focused on building better reasoning capabilities into natural language processing (NLP) models.

In my spare time, I like reading & thinking about philosophy, math, and consciousness. Recent favorite book: Gödel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid by Douglas Hofstadter.
