I am a final-year PhD candidate 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, with a special focus on understanding their trustworthiness. Prior to joining UIUC, I obtained my MCS degree in Computer Science at University of Virginia and BEng degree in Telecommunications Engineering at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications.

I'm on job market for faculty position this year. Please feel free to reach out if you have potential job opportunities.
