Hi Professor Yu! My question is, how does one start thinking about their "pitch" or the specific types of things they'd like to research during PhD? I.e. beyond keywords like "natural language processing", maybe something like "building language systems which are capable of understanding and doing XYZ" -- how do you expand that "mission statement" further and how do you know it's what you "really" want to do? Thank you so much!

Hi Professor Yu, I also double majored in linguistics and CS in undergrad. How do you feel like your expertise in both areas contribute to your research and your view?

What are best practices for building a network in Academia. I am under the impression that most academic jobs (post-docs + teaching) are based on referral

Hi Professor Yu. In a research project, is it possible that an idea underperforms in small experiments but outperforms in large-scale experiments that only industry could conduct?
