I'm an associate professor of computer science at Fudan University since Nov 2017.  Prior to this, I was a senior research scientist of machine learning at Data61 (formerly NICTA), CSIRO and a lecturer at University of Technology Sydney (UTS). I received my PhD degree in computer science from Fudan University in 2009. My current research interests lie in machine learning, AI and cognitive science, particularly in complex data (high-dimensional, structured, streaming, etc.) representation, modeling and inference.
