BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Chang received his Ph.D. in Computer Science at National Chiao Tung University in 2007. From 1999 to 2008, he was the Research Fellow with the Research Center for Psychological and Educational Testing at National Taiwan Normal University. He joined National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences in 2008 and is currently an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering. His research interests are centered around natural language processing, information retrieval, soft computing, and educational technology. He is also the designer of ACES (automatic Chinese essay scoring) system and the co-PI of CRIE project.
