BIOGRAPHY

I obtained my Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2009. I worked with Professor Jiawei Han in the Data Mining Research GroupPrior to joining UIUC, I studied at the Special Class for Gifted Young (SCGY), University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). I received my Master degree in 2006 from UIUC and my Bachelor degree in 2003 from USTC, both are in Computer Science.

I joined Google in August, 2009.

RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am generally interested in data mining, data warehousing and database systems. My research focuses on modeling, managing and analyzing large-scale graph and information network data, with applications from chem/bio-informatics, social networks, the Web and computer systems. My Ph.D. thesis topic was on endowing graph data with the power of multi-dimensional analysis and OLAP (On-Line Analytical Processing) functionalities.
