I'm an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, College of Engineering at the University of Notre Dame. My research focuses on data-driven user behavior modeling for applications such as future behavior prediction, social recommendation, fraud detection, and event summarization. It is at the intersection of social media analysis, network science, text mining, information extraction, spatiotemporal data mining, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.

I was a postdoctoral researcher of Computer Science at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign working with Professor Jiawei Han. I joined the Data Mining Research Group in August 2015. I completed my Ph.D. in Department of Computer Science and Technology at Tsinghua University, Beijing under the supervision of Professor Shiqiang Yang in 2015. I did my bachelor degree at the same department in 2010. I was born in Lianyungang, Jiangsu, China.

I visited the Database Group in School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University under the supervision of Professor Christos Faloutsos from August 2012 to May 2013 (9 months). I visited Professor VS Subrahmanian in University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies, College Park.

I have delivered two book chapters and six conference tutorials. My Ph.D. thesis won the Dissertation Award at Tsinghua. My work on "Suspicious Behavior Detection" was selected as one of the Best Paper Finalists in SIGKDD 2014. My work on "Social Contextual Recommendation" has been deployed in the Tencent social network. The package of my work on "Attribute Discovery from Text Corpora" is transferring to US Army Research Lab. (My Google Scholar)
