About Me

Currently, I am a professor and vice dean in the School of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC), Chengdu, China.  I am running the Algorithms and Logic Group in UESTC.

From 2024, I will serve as the chair of Theoretical Computer Science Committee in China Computer Federation.

I received my Ph.D in computer science from The Chinese University of Hong Kong under the supervision of Professor Andrew Chi-Chih Yao and Professor Leizhen Cai in 2008. I received my M.S and B.S in mathematics from Central South University in 2005 and 2002, respectively. 

We will hold WALCOM 2025 and COCOON 2025 at Chengdu. Please submit your nice papers.

The 19th International Conference and Workshop on Algorithms and Computation (WALCOM 2025) will be held during Feburary 28 - March 2, 2025 at Chengdu, China.

COCOON 2025 will be held in August, 2025 at Chengdu, China. More details will come soon.
