I'm a Researcher at National ICT Australia (NICTA). Prior to this, I was a Lecturer at University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). I received my PhD degree in Computer Science from Fudan University in 2009. My research interests include machine learning and its applications to recommender systems and big data analytics. I'm a pioneer in the following research topics: 
  • Big Structured Data Hashing: ICDM-12, PAKDD-13, SDM-14, etc.
  • Cross-Domain Collaborative Filtering: IJCAI-09, ICML-09, IJCAI-11, ICTAI-11, WWWJ-13, etc.
