About me

Jingqing Zhang (张敬卿) is a 3rd-year PhD (HiPEDS) at Department of Computing , Imperial College London under the supervision of Prof. Yi-Ke Guo. His research interest includes Natural Language Processing, Text Mining, Data Mining and Deep Learning. He received his BEng degree in Computer Science and Technology from Tsinghua University, 2016, and MRes degree with distinction in Computing from Imperial College London, 2017. I am also a technical co-founder of Pangaea Data.


  • [06/2020] PEGASUS, a pre-training model tailored for abstractive text summarization which achieves state-of-the-art on 12 datasets, is now public (including code and checkpoints). This work is completed together with my excellent colleagues during my internship at Google Research, Brain Team. PEGASUS is accepted by ICML 2020.
