I am currently a research scientist at Data Analytics Department, Institute for Infocomm Research, A*STAR. I previously obtained a PhD Degree in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
in 2014 (on fully funded scholarship from A*STAR), and Bachelor of Computing with Fist Class Honors from National University of Singapore
in 2009 (as the top student in Computer Science). My research interests lie at the broad intersection of database, data mining and machine learning. In particular, I have been focused on:
- Principles and methods of data mining and machine learning for graph data and information networks;
- Data-centric applications for the Web, social media and other big data.
