Haoyi "Bertrand" Xiong (熊昊一), Ph.D

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, MO, United States. Before that I was a Research Associate in Department of Systems and Information Engineering, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, United States. 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.

Looking for interns! (Pls contact me if you hope to work with me on some interesting research topics in Baidu Beijing Campus)
