Curriculum Vitae


I am heading the Machine Learning Group at Georgia Institute of Technology.

My principal research interests lie in the development of efficient algorithms and systems which can learn from a massive volume of complex (high dimensional, nonlinear, multi-modal, skewed, and structured) data arising from both artificial and natural systems, reveal trends and patterns too subtle for humans to detect, and automate decision making processes in uncertain and dynamic possible world.

I am also interested in developing machine learning algorithms to address interdisciplinary problems. Projects I've worked on range from the modeling of robotic systems based on sensor measurements, to the discovery of evolving gene regulatory networks based on microarray time-series, to the management of information diffusion based on temporal sequences of social events, to the understanding of disease progression based on longitudinal medical records, to the extraction of topics based on online document feeds, and to the prediction of materials properties based on computational and lab experiments.

Brief Biography

I obtained B.S. degree in computer science from the South China University of Technology, Guangzhou, China in 2002. After that, I received my Master's degree in 2004, and Ph.D. degree in 2008 both in computer science from the University of Sydney, Australia. I was also a Ph.D. student with the Statistical Machine Learning Program at NICTA, and my thesis advisor is Alex Smola. Since Summer 2008, I was a postdoc fellow at Carnegie Mellon Univeristy, working on machine learning and computational biology projects with Eric Xing, Carlos Guestrin, Geff Gordon and Jeff Schneider. Right before I joined Georgia Tech, I spent some time as a research scientist at Fernando Pereira's group at Google Research.
