I am currently a smart cities postdoc at CUSP & ViDA, New York University, hosted by Prof. Juliana Freire and Prof. Daniel B. Neill. My interests are mainly on spatial database. I have published full research papers on top venues in database and information systems as the first author, such as SIGMOD, PVLDB, ICDE, SIGIR, WSDM, TKDE, and ACM Computing Surveys.
2021-1-19: I will serve on the review board for PVLDB 2022.
2020-12-10: Our work "Public Transport Planning: When Transit Network Connectivity Meets Commuting Demand" is accepted to SIGMOD 2021 directly without revision.
2020-11-30: Our latest survey on trajectory data management, analytics, and learning is accepted to ACM Computing Surveys.
2020-11-28: I will give a guest lecture on clustering at Prof. Juliana Freire's Big Data Course.
2020-9-15: Our work "On the Efficiency of K-Means Clustering: Evaluation, Optimization, and Algorithm Selection" is accepted to VLDB 2021.
2020-8-25: I am invited to serve as a PC member for IJCAI 2021.
2020-3-25: Our latest survey on trajectory data management, analytics, and learning is online.
2019-9-27: I gave a 15 mins talk about my research at CUSP seminar, check the slides here.
