About Me

I am a 4th year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara, working with Prof. Ambuj K. Singh and Prof. Xifeng Yan.

My research interest includes designing fast algorithms for searching, mining and analyzing large, dynamic graphs, including those graphs modeling social networks, interaction networks, communication networks, collaborative networks, data-center networks, and many other relational data.

Before joining UCSB, I received Bachelor's degree and Master's degree in Computer Science from Nanjing University.

Here is my CV.
