I'm currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science with the State Key Laboratory of Internet of Things for Smart City (IOTSC) at University of Macau.

Before joining the University of Macau, I worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow with Prof. Monika Henzinger at the Faculty of Computer Science, University of Vienna. 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.

Openings

Postdoc, PhD, & Research Assistant at University of Macau

We regularly have several positions for Postdoc, Phd, and Research Assistant (visiting scholar) each year. If you are interested in my research and want to join our group, please don't hesitate to send me an email with your CV and representative publication.

Students with ICPC programming contest experience will have priority.
