I am a Postdoctoral Fellow working with Prof. Monika Henzinger at the Faculty of Computer Science, University of Vienna. Before that, I have worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the City University of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and the University of Hong Kong. I received my PhD degree from the University of Hong Kong under the supervision of Dr. Hubert Chan. I received my BEng degree from University of Science and Technology of China.

I will be joining the State Key Laboratory of Internet of Things for Smart City in the University of Macau as an assistant professor in March, 2020.

Research Interests

I am broadly interested in theoretical computer science, and its applications in data mining problems. More specifically, my research interests span various topics in online algorithms, approximation algorithms, data structure and truthful mechanism design.
