I am currently a smart cities postdoc at New York University, supervised by Prof. Juliana Freire and Prof. Daniel B. Neill. I got my Ph.D. from RMIT University, Australia in 2019, supervised by Dr. Zhifeng Bao, A/Prof. J. Shane Culpepper, and Prof. Timos Sellis. My interests are mainly on spatial database, especially trajectory data management. I have published several full research papers on top venues in database and information systems as the first author, such as PVLDB, SIGIR, WSDM, ICDE, TKDE.
- 2019-08-15: Our paper "Fast large-scale trajectory clustering" is accepted to VLDB 2020.
- 2019-08-13: I get my Ph.D. degree today, and my thesis is also available online.
- 2019-07-08: It is time to announce that I will join New York University’s Center for Urban Science And Progress (CUSP) as a Smart Cities Postdoctoral Fellow in this fall.
