About Me

I am a researcher in NEC Laboratories America. I received the Ph.D. in Computer Science Department at Virginia Tech, in 2019. My advisor is Prof. Chang-Tien Lu. I received my B.E. degree in Software Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2009. Before joining Virginia Tech, I worked for Microsoft and SAP Inc. as software engineer and technical support engineer. In the broad area of data mining, machine learning, and natural language processing, my research interests include: 1) Robust model learning in massive data sets under adversarial data corruption. 2) Text mining tasks such as document classification, dynamic topic modeling, and event extraction. 3) Interdisciplinary applications in areas such as multi-factor personality prediction, spatiotemporal event forecasting in hyper-local price data.
