About Me

I am a PhD candidate at the Discovery Analytics Center in the Computer Science department of Virginia Tech. Advised by Dr. Naren Ramakrishnan, my research work has focused on applying machine learning algorithms to solve real world problems such as forecasting societal events as well as predicting users’ behaviors in online services. I received my Master’s degree in Computer Science from Graduate University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. I have broad interests in text mining, knowledge discovery and machine learning. Please email me for an up-to-date resume.
