I am a (pre-tenure) professor in The School of Computer Science and Engineering at USTC, and direct the Data Intelligence, Algorithms, and Geometry (DIAG) group. Before moving back to China, I was a tenure-track assistant professor in the department of computer science and engineering at Michigan State University for a short time (2016-2018). I held a joint research fellow position of Tsinghua University and UC Berkeley from 2015 to 2016, which is titled as "Simons-Berkeley Research Fellow". I got my Ph.D under supervision of Dr.Jinhui Xu, in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, State University of New York at Buffalo, in 2015. I received my bachelor degree in Mathematics from Sun Yat-Sen (Zhong Shan) University in 2009.

My research interests lie in the fields of Algorithms, Computational Geometry, and their applications in real world, e.g., Machine Learning, Big Data, Internet of Things, Computer Vision, and Biomedical Imaging. Please see my CV and Research for details.
