  • Biography
  • I received my Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Kansas in 2017, advised by professor Jun (Luke) Huan; I also worked with professor Bo Luo on social network analysis. During 2012 summer, I was a student at the Data Science Summer Institute at UIUC, supervised by Yizhou Sun and Rui Li on Twitter hot event detection. I received my master degree from the Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications (NJUPT) in China in 2011, advised by professor Xiaoyuan Jing. I received my bachelor degree in electronic and information engineering from NJUPT in 2008.
