Short Bio [CV]

I'm a research fellow in the School of Computing, National University of Singapore, working with Professor Mohan Kankanhalli. Before this job, I did my Ph.D in School of Information Systems (SIS), Singapore Management University (SMU), under the supervision of Prof. Jialie Shen. I received my B.E. and M.E. degree from Huazhong University of Science & Technology (HUST) and Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU), in 2007 and 2010, respectively. I visited Language Technologies Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, and worked with Prof. Alexander G. Hauptmann from Aug. 2014 to July 2015. I was a research assistant in SIS, SMU from November 2009 to July 2011.
