I am a second-year graduate student in Data Mining Group at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, advised by Prof. Jiawei Han. I am finishing my MS study and will be a PhD student in the same group in Fall 2019. My research interests are text mining, information network analysis, and their applications to bioinformatics.
Before joining UIUC, I received my B.S degree in Computer Science from Peking University in 2017. During my junior and senior years, I was a research assistant at Data Analysis and Intelligent Retrieval Lab, supervised by Prof. Yan Zhang.
I was born and raised in Shanghai.
