About Me

I am a 5th 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.

I am interested in big data mining and management in emerging areas. My recent research work focuses on mining and managing large-scale heterogeneous temporal graphs for real-life applications in cybersecurity, system performance analysis, online social networks, cloud data-centers, stream processing systems, mobile networks, and many others.

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

Here is my CV.

Note: I am in the academic job market of this year, and will search for tenure-track assistant faculty positions beginning in Fall 2015.
