I am a 4th-year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and a member of iDEA Lab led by Dr. Hanghang Tong. My research interests mainly lie in large-scale data mining and machine learning on graphs.
Before joining UIUC, I obtained my BEng degree in Communications Engineering at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications and MCS degree in Computer Science at University of Virginia. Then I spent two years at Arizona State University as a PhD student in School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering.
