About Me (CV)

I'm an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at University of California, Davis. I founded IFM Lab in 2017, and have been working as the director since then. IFM Lab is a research oriented academic laboratory, providing the latest information on fusion learning and data mining research works and application tools to both academia and industry.

Prior to joining UC Davis, I worked at Florida State University and obtained my PhD degree in Computer Science from University of Illinois at Chicago in 2017. I have worked at Yahoo! Research in 2016, IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in 2015, and Microsoft Research in 2014 as summer research intern. I received my B.S. degree from Department of Computer Science, Nanjing University in 2012.
