About Me

I am a senior research associate in the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech. I work with Professor Wu-chun Feng.

I received my PhD in computer science from Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICT, CAS) in 2008. My advisor was Professor Zhiwei Xu. I worked at Department of Computer Science and Engineering of the Ohio State University as a postdoctoral researcher before I joined Virginia Tech.
