About me

I am an Assistant Professor working with the School of Computer Science and Technology at Shandong University. I received my Ph.D. degree from the Computer Science Department at Stony Brook University, SUNY, where I worked in the Data Management and Biomedical Data Analytics Lab(BMIDB) under the supervision of Professor Fusheng Wang. I received my M.S. in Computer Science from Emory University and my B.E. in Software Engineering from Xi’an Jiaotong University. A full version of my CV can be found here.

My research interests lie in Big Data Systems, Spatial-Temporal Data Management Systems, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). I am looking for self-motivated Master’s students. If you are interested in playing with big spatial data at a billion, even trillion scales, please drop me an email with your resume attached.
