About Myself

I graduated with a Ph.D. in ECE from Carnegie Mellon University in May, 2009. I now work in Google Kirkland. Previously, I worked in the Bing core search team at Microsoft.

I was advised by Prof. Takeo Kanade, Dr. Lee Weiss and Dr. Phil Campbell. I was a Ph.D. candidate in ECE, the University of Iowa prior to August, 2004, where I studied under Prof. Milan Sonka. I obtained an M.S. degree from the University of Iowa in December, 2003, and a B.S. degree from Nanjing University, Nanjing, China in June, 2002, both in Electrical Engineering.

My research interests include large-scale machine learning, computer vision, biomedical image analysis, information retrieval, natural language processing, and data mining. During the course of my Ph.D. study, I developed a software system that can simultaneously track thousands of living stem cells in time-lapsed microscopy images.

I was born in China's south-eastern city Nanjing, and lived in three Chinese cities: Nanjing, until I was 6; Zhanjiang, a southern coastal city, until I was 14; and Shenzhen, where my parents currently live, until I was 18.
