Work Experience

Garden Villa , Special Assistant to General Manager, Jul 2015 ~ Aug 2018

  • Cooperating with General Manager in recruiting, training, payroll processing, performance.
  • Coordinating with General Manager in planning short and long term projects, budgets, expense controls, schedules and human resources.
  • Implementing quality and productivity objectives to achieve company goals.
  • Supervising staff and controlling merchandise.


  • Modeling Meta-Explainability of Natural Language Inference
    • Evaluating model explainability with human-involved test, to provide the Explainable Artificial Intelligence community cutting edge insights.
    • In Natural Language Inference, we identified attention mechanism do tend to attend the key information after trained with different but related tasks.
    • Retrieving explanation to the NLI task from attention weights, analyzing the meta-explainability of different models and methods.
    • Comparing the difference between how model and human make an explanation, evaluating human trust and preference to the model explanation.

Below are some of my project experiences. Most projects combine information technology and user research/experience to better meet users' needs.


  • TRANS ACTION AWARD 2018 - 1st place out of 70 teams.
  • A competition combined cross-domain and user experience.
  • Proposing a service to solve problems derived from the  growing needs of migrant workers.
  • Taking part in the whole research progress and design the application.

NCCU Foods & Friends

  • Start from the inconvenience of the blind.
  • Find the true pain point - poor dining experience
  • Proposing a service to improve their dining experience. 
  • Taking continuity and universality into consideration to appeal general users.
  • Improving the co-dining experience for general users to reach sustainable development.
