Senior Research Scientist, Big Data Lab, Baidu Research

Personal Email: xhyccc@gmail.com

I am currently a Senior Research Scientist at Baidu Research Big Data Lab. From Fall 2016 to Spring 2018, I was a Tenure Track Assistant Professor in Department of Computer Science, Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla, Missouri. Before that I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Department of Systems and Information Engineering, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia. I received Ph.D degree in Computer Science from Telecom SudParis jointly with Pierre and Marie Curie University, Paris, France in 2015. I obtained M.Sc and B.Eng degrees from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (2010) and Huazhong University of Science and Technology (2009), respectively.
