He is now spending his one-year visit at Computer Science Department, Carnegie Mellon University(CMU), as a research scholar. He is hosted and supervised by Professor Christos Faloutsos.

He received his Ph.D. degree from Computer Science & Technology Department, Tsinghua University in 2010, and visited Electronic Engineering Department, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) for more than a year as a Ph.D. student. He was hosted and supervised by Professor Lei He. He is in consequence listed as one of the Alumni in Academia by UCLA.

His current research interests are solving the real data mining and machine learning problems, related to computation and optimization of big graphs and series. They are fundamental representations of many key problems in a wide range of online social networks, shoppings, and stock tradings. The related publications are on TKDE, AAAI, IJCAI, CIKM, WWW, SDM, PAKDD, WI, etc.
