I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Hong Kong Baptist University. I earned a Ph.D. in computer science from Nanyang Technological University, followed by a postdoctoral stint at National University of Singapore, working with Prof. Xiaokui XIAO. I worked as a software engineer at Tencent for one year after receiving my B.Eng. degree from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications in 2015. Broadly speaking, my research aims to develop efficient algorithms and systems for large-scale data management and analysis.
