About Me

Hi! I am a first-year PhD student in Department of Computer Science, Stanford University, currently rotating with Prof. Dan McFarland and Prof. Dan Jurafsky. In previous quarters, I rotated with Prof. Michael Bernstein and Prof. Jure Leskovec.

I received my bachelor degree (with honors) from Department of Electronic Engineering, Tsinghua University in 2018. I studied as an exchange student in A. James Clark School of Engineering, University of Maryland, College Park in Fall 2016.

I have been a research assistant in Future Communications and Internet Lab, Tsinghua University, advised by Prof. Yong Li and Prof. Vassilis Kostakos (University of Melbourne) since 2015. In Fall 2016, I was fortunate enough to work under the supervision of Distinguished University Professor Prof. Hanan Samet at University of Maryland. In Summer 2017, I was a visiting student and research assistant at Human Dynamics Group, MIT Media Lab, advised by Prof. Alex 'Sandy' Pentland and Prof. Xiaowen Dong.

My research interests lie in data mining, ubiquitous computing, computational social science and complex networks.
