About Me

I am a Master student, just graduated from the Department of Computer Science at UC Santa Barbara. I worked in SAND Lab, co-advised by Prof. Ben Y.Zhao and Prof. Heather Zheng. My research interest is Mobile Computing, and Social Networking.

I have just had my 2014's summer internship in Graph Query Team at LinkedIn.
I had my 2013's summer internship in Internet Services Research Center(ISRC) at Microsoft Research Redmond. My mentor is Dr. Emre Kiciman. I worked on a project on relationships between researchers.

I have got my B.S degree at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). I am part of the elite ACM class, the most prestigious and selective class in the SJTU Computer Science department. I’ve been a research intern at Apex-Lab and my advisor is Prof. Yong Yu.

I was a full-time research intern in Mobile and Sensing System (MASS) at MSRA. My Mentor is Dr. Nicholas Lane. I have worked on three closely related projects which are focused on mobile sensing: NAKAHI, MCB, PCS.
