Biography

Dr. Shuo Shang is a Research Scientist at Computer, Electrical and Mathematics Sciences & Engineering, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. He is a member of China Computer Federation Technical Committee on Databases (CCF-TCDB) and a member of China Association of Geographic Information Society Technical Committee on Theory and Methodology. He was a Research Assistant Professor with Department of Computer Science, Aalborg Universityand he was also a faculty member of the Center for Data-intensive Systems (Daisy), Aalborg University. 

He obtained his B.Sc. from Peking University in 2008, and Ph.D. from The University of Queensland in 2012, both in Computer Science. During September to December 2011, he spent three months at Aarhus University as a visiting scholar hosted by Prof. Chiristian S. Jensen. During 2011 to 2017, he holds positions of visiting research scientist and visiting professor at Nanyang Technological University (NTU)Nagoya University, Aalborg University, Queens University Belfast, and University of Utah. His research interests include big data, massive data management and analytics, urban computing, spatial trajectory computing, and location based services. He was the winner of "Beijing New Star in Science and Technology" (Beijing Nova Program) of Year 2016. He received the "Excellent Talents of Beijing" Award of Year 2014 conferred by Beijing Government. He is/was on PC Member of SIGMOD 2018, ICDE 2018, and CIKM 2017, Demo Chair of APWeb/WAIM Joint Conference 2017, and Session Chair (session of moving objects) of ICDE 2013. He is on the reviewer board of several top database/data mining journals such as IEEE TKDE, The VLDB Journal, ACM TIST, ACM TSAS, IEEE TITS, Geoinformatica, KAIS, DKE, WWW Journal, JCST, and IEICE Transactions.

I am looking for highly-motivated Master and PhD students, and Postdocs with very competitive salaries. 

If you are interested, please send me your resume by email.
