I am a Professor (博导) in University of Science and Technology of China. I received B.Eng. from Beihang University in July 2015 and PhD from National University of Singapore in August 2019. I have about 60 publications appeared in several top conferences such as SIGIR, SIGKDD, WWW, and ACMMM, and journals including TKDE, TOIS, and TNNLS. I received the Best Paper Honourable Mention in SIGIR 2021 and Best Poster Award in WWW 2018. My research interests include information retrieval, data mining, and multi-media analytics, particularly in machine learning techniques and applications such as causal inference, graph neural networks, adversarial learning, multi-source learning, recommender systems, FinTech, and text mining. Moreover, I have served as the PC member for top-tier conferences including SIGIR, WWW, SIGKDD, NeurIPS, ICLR, ICML, ACL, and ACMMM, and the invited reviewer for prestigious journals such as TOIS, TKDE, TPAMI, TNNLS, and Nature Sustainability.

Advertisements:

1. Hiring tenure-track faculties and postdocs in NLP/IR/DM. Requirements:
- With PhD degree (or graduate soon)
- At least three first-author papers on tier-1 conferences
We provide competitive salary, sufficient funding and student supports, and good career opportunities.

2. Hiring PhD students from USTC and masters. Requirements:
- Strong code ability (C/C++ or Python)
- English (CET-6 score 500+, or equal levels)
- Determination to do high-quality research.

3. Hiring undergraduate interns. Requirements:
- Strong code ability (C/C++ or Python)
- Determination to do high-quality research.
- Experience in big data and AI projects.
- Experience in high-level competitions (e.g., ACM-ICPC and KDD-Cup) will be considered.

I hope every student can receive the core ability of systematically analyzing and solving research/technical problems, meanwhile, have a colorful and healthy life during the study in my group. I encourage students to be communicative and active in the group. I support various group activities, especially sports like badminton, jogging, and basketball. Meanwhile, I will try my best to create internship or visiting opportunities for students seeking such experience.
